Welcome to the wiki of the Hackuarium association, an open public lab, which wishes to democratise research! <br>
 +
 
 +
<br>
 +
At Hackuarium, we want to bring biology (and biologists) to the world, and the real world back to biology. Our laboratory is an excuse to meet and discuss, build and develop ideas in a neutral, open, noncompetitive and not-for-profit environment.<br>
 +
 
 +
This page was launched during our [[1st Ever Hackuarium Wiki Sprint]] that took place on 7 December 2014. As you might notice quickly, almost everything here is work-in-progress, even though '''this adventure has already been going on over 6 years'''! <br> (Hackuarium's official 'birthday' btw is 13Aug2014.) <br>

 +
<br>
 +
With its P1 lab on the southern side with three sets of windows, and the 'inner lab' for fluorescence, bioilluminescence, and some chemistry, Hackuarium is well set up. The context of the cooperative we formed, esp with members of Octanis and Polymeka (plus a few startups*), means possibilities for exploring and making in this peaceful corner of Ecublens are virtually endless! <br>
 +
<br>
 +
TO NOTE: <br>1) This fabulous [https://goo.gl/maps/R9i8bf8dHBkAJePJ6 location], by the Crochy metro stop, even, is unfortunately already destined for destruction, so we are on the look out for a new space! <br>    ***    '''(''Please pass on any leads you might have in this regard.'')'''<br>

2) This wiki page is currently - June 2020 - being edited for the first time since dec2019!  ''looking forward to members adding some more info for 2020''. <br>

La matière vivante est de plus en plus facilement cultivable, modulable, modifiable. Entre science et design, innovation et création artistique, Hackuarium est une rencontre entre des scientifiques et de citoyens de la région lausannoise qui veulent promouvoir ou pratiquer la biologie DIY dans un lieu qui offre à chacun la possibilité de découvrir, d’expérimenter et de contribuer ses compétences dans un laboratoire communautaire.

=What is DIYbio?=
Hackuarium est une communauté de bricoleurs passionnés constituée en association. L'assemblée constitutive a eu lieu le 13 août 2014.
+
DIYbio (Do-It-Yourself biology) is a movement that wants to free the practice of biological research and innovation from the institutional and industrial laboratories. Pursued both by amateurs and professional biologists, DIYbio is developing low-cost and low-tech solutions to problems identified by the community.
  
Nos membres pratiquent une science ouverte et participative, en dehors des institutions traditionnelles, dans le respect de la [http://diybio.org/codes/draft-diybio-code-of-ethics-from-european-congress/ charte éthique] du mouvement DIYbio EU. Nous favorisons par tous les moyens l'interdisciplinarité, et nos projets sont portés aussi bien par des scientifiques que par des citoyens architectes, designers, informaticiens, journalistes ou retraités.
+
The movement is characterised by an extremely diverse set of practices and participants. Some call themselves 'biohackers', in reference to the hacker culture. The quick solution (even if unconventional) is what is meant by hacks...
Nos projets préférés incluent la plupart du temps une approche à bas coût (low-cost) et la technologie la plus simple possible (low-tech). Nous nous inscrivons également dans une démarche d'upcycling de matériel mis au rebut par les laboratoires de la région.
+
  
Notre laboratoire est ouvert à tous ceux qui partagent nos valeurs et se situe à Renens, au sein d'UniverCité, un lieu d'innovation inauguré le 26 mai 2014.<br>

Notre communauté est le pilier de l'association Hackuarium. Nos membres, au passé varié et aux motivations multiples vivent à Lausanne et dans ses environs.<br>

We actually believe more and more in doing '''DIT (Do-It-Together) Research''', not just 'DIYbio,' as this seems much ''better for Open Science, and reflects better the scope of the trans-disciplinary projects we do (often not only biology''). Another term people like to use is DIWO (Do It With Others)!<br>

Hackuarium is a not-for-profit association aiming to democratise science through public engagement.<br>
  
=== Les amis d'Hackuarium ===
+
Our laboratories in Ecublens (Switzerland) are open to anyone sharing the values of the association and dedicated to follow the [http://diybio.org/codes/draft-diybio-code-of-ethics-from-european-congress/ DIYbio Europe ethical guidelines].<br>
::<li>[http://www.univercite.ch UniverCité]
+
 
 +
Our projects are initiated and carried out by scientists and non-scientists from a variety of backgrounds. They are passionate about tinkering with biology in particular, and technology in general. Some are engineers, architects, designers, IT and computer scientists or retired professionals, but others have no scientific education. They are mostly citizens interested in open and participatory research and innovation, outside the constraints of traditional institutions.<br>
 +
 
 +
Hackuarium members want to investigate new ways of carrying out interdisciplinary research and innovation, by making their results open, accessible (low-cost), simple and easily reproducible (low-tech) and by promoting an open source philosophy.<br>
 +
 
 +
And if you are curious where the name comes from, take a look [https://twitter.com/heluc/status/445681952885321730 here].
 +
 
 +
For [http://wiki.hackuarium.ch/w/History2019 some History], you know what to do... ;) <br>
 +
To make a long story short, Hackuarium '''found a new home'''  (yay!) in Ecublens, for the moment, with some like minds!  <br>
 +
A cooperative ([[Space Alliance Coopérative]]) with two other associations ([[Octanis]] & [[Polymeka]]) and a few other startups came together to look for a new place to call home and provide space for everyone's projects and work. Our first activities at Route de Crochy 20 started in February 2019.
 +
 
 +
<br>
 +
 
 +
=Where are we located?=
 +
 
 +
'''Route de Crochy 20, CH-1024 Écublens, Switzerland''' (Ouest lausannois, m1 Crochy)<br>
 +
The overall map of the new space is shown to the right, with the new Hackuarium located primary in two rooms (marked with our little purple '''open science octopus''' logo). [[File:Crochy20Ecublens - spaceallocsmallerb15may19.png|400px|thumb|right| map of the space]] <br>
 +
The '''biolab''' is located in a south facing room of over 22m2, with three windows and a linoleum floor. <br>
 +
We also have a so-called ''''inner sanctum'''' without windows, that is mainly for electronics and chemistry work, but can also be used for some biology studies, especially higher resolution microscopy (also with a Raspberry Pi camera on the old Zeiss scope, and with the option to try the OpenFlexure :) and bioluminescence studies, but growth of cultures is not allowed in this space. <br>
 +
(there is a carpet!)  <br>
 +
There are also other Hackuarium 'assets' around the corner from the biolab, shown as purple rectangles on the map and including the sterile hood and the ultracentrifuge.  A closet also contains a great deal of consumables and other labware.  (We welcome project ideas that will use some of this! :)
 +
<br>
 +
'''To note once more: this building is really only a provisional space, as it is destined for destruction in the next 3-5 years!''' <br>
 +
We will continue to look for a more permanent space, while developing our community further and promoting Open Science! <br>
 +
Of course the problem with 'corona' is a new challenge for us all to surmount...
 +
Our biolab, with controlled P1 access, and the 'inner sanctum' for electronics and imagerie and more are already facilitating project experiments, even the #[https://app.jogl.io/project/181 coronadetective], with more fun in the pipeline with our coop colleagues, like Sam and Raffael from Octanis, who were also early members of Hackuarium. In fact, Octanis was 'born' as a Hackuarium project, luckily for everyone... They are even now giving the old Hackuarium bioreactor project new life, and providing expertise for the new openflexure epifluorescence build!  :)<br>
 +
 
 +
 
 +
<br>
 +
 
 +
=Who are we?=
 +
 
 +
Our members reflect the diversity that is in and around the Lausanne area.<br>

'''''As measures are relaxed, rising cases are evident. Simply watching it all, especially for hospitalisations/deaths in England... <br>
 +
Please make the most of the chance to get vaccinated, if you have not yet...
 +
<br> Each active infection gives the virus another chance to acquire something new - hopefully not the means to evade immunity! <br>

== Rules at Hackuarium ==
Tu viens d'arriver? tu cherches tes repères? Alors commence alors par lire [[I m new | cette page ]].
+
  
=== [[Life_Main | Règles de vie à Hackuarium]] ===
+
We have very few rules at Hackuarium. The goal of the association is to provide freedom to its members, so they can explore beyond what is allowed elsewhere. However, we want members and anyone participating in our activities to feel comfortable and respected, and, especially for biosafety and the P1 lab, we want to make sure members always follow the rules. <br>
[[Life_Main | Cette page ]] recense les codes de bonne conduite à adopter à Hackuarium ainsi que les quelques règles s'appliquant dans certains cas spécifiques.
+
  
=== [[Protocols | Protocoles]] ===
+
[[Life_Main | This page]] describes the code of conduct for Hackuarium members.<br>
Tous les protocoles liés à Hackuarium se trouvent [[ BioP_Main | ici ]] (page en Anglais)
+
Ils sont structurés et expliqués de façon à être axés sur les procédé de manipulation. L'idée est de donner les informations cruciales de manière à appliquer les techniques les plus communes appartenant à la boite à outils du biologiste. Les documents sont structurés comme suit:
+
::<li> Un schéma décrivant le procédé
+
::<li> Une explication brève du procédé et son utilité
+
::<li> Un protocole décrivant les différentes procédures pour appliquer le procédé. Idéalement il y aurait une description pour le faire avec un kit commercial et un moyen DIY.
+
::<li> Une partie détaillant les précautions à prendre pour travailler en toute sécurité.
+
::<li> Des informations spécifiques à Hackuarium décrivant ou se trouve les instruments et comment les utiliser.
+
  
=== [[Instru_Main | Instruments et leurs utilisation]] ===
+
== Use of the Biolab (P1 lab=Biosafety Level 1 experiments possible) ==
[[Instru_Main | Cette page ]](Anglais) recense tous les instruments disponibles sur le lieu, leur position ainsi que la manière dont ils doivent être utilisés.
+
As of November 2017, Hackuarium was officially hosting its own P1 laboratory.  While we still lacked some essential infrastructure (-80 freezer, ventilated fume hood), we were (and still are!) working on it...
 +
More can be found out about use of that previous facility by following the next link...
 +
[[P1_Lab_Activities| P1 Lab Activities]]
 +
However, '''the new space in Ecublens has even more challenges''', with the sterile hood not even fitting in the doors (or windows even) of the Biolab! So, while we indeed hoped to again qualify as an official P1, we were not yet sure intil 6June2019, when a visitor from Bern (mandataire from BAFU) came to the lab to inspect everything, and ended up telling us to go on ahead and work (after admin details sorted - address change with BAFU)!  What great news! <br>
 +
The [[Biolab| Biolab Use and Safety]] page specifies equipment and standard operating procedures in the lab in the context of the cooperative in Ecublens. <br>
 +
12 members have already done the intro to biosecurity (but not all have yet signed their waivers!) and will have 24/7 access to the lab. <br> Interested in developing a project with us?  <br>We look forward to seeing you there!

+
== Protocols ==
Ce document présente le matériel dont nous avons besoin. Si il vous arrivait d'avoir une des pièce que nous recherchons faites nous le savoir, nous comptons sur vous! :-)
+
Many protocols that we use at Hackuarium will be found [[ BioP_Main | here ]] (work in progress).
 +
They are detailed and structured so that the main focus is on applications. The idea is to give crucial information on how to apply the most common techniques of the Biology toolbox. The protocols are structured as follow:
 +
::<li> A scheme describing each
 +
::<li> A brief description of the protocol and its use
 +
::<li> A description of the different ways of carrying out the protocol. Ideally there should be a description of a commercial kit and a DIY kit.
 +
::<li> A description of the safety issues and best practice
 +
::<li> Information specific to Hackuarium and where to find the components, tools and reagents.

=== A list of instruments we still need ===
 +
This [https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1agHVlyMzcg_cdjTlg8bABzjHnOc7Gu0B8v2FGhcEabU/edit?usp=sharing on-line document] contains a list of instruments, tools and consumables we are looking for generally.  We could also greatly use an '''ordinary dissecting scope (''binocular loupe'') with non-heating illumination for manipulations of microbes''' of all sorts (i.e. for the Moss Menageries). We have a standard donation contract ([[Contrat_de_donation|contrat de donation]], in French) and if your organisation happens to want to discard a piece of equipment we are (or may be) looking for, [mailto:hello@hackuarium.ch contact us]!

+
As a general rule, we do not buy anything. We try to recycle, upcycle, bicycle, epicycle anything we can, or ask around if anyone can provide supplies for free.<br>
  
Si vous voulez des informations au sujet d'Hackuarium, n'hésitez pas à envoyer un email à hello[at]hackuarium[dot]ch.

Welcome to the wiki of the Hackuarium association, an open public lab, which wishes to democratise research!


At Hackuarium, we want to bring biology (and biologists) to the world, and the real world back to biology. Our laboratory is an excuse to meet and discuss, build and develop ideas in a neutral, open, noncompetitive and not-for-profit environment.

This page was launched during our 1st Ever Hackuarium Wiki Sprint that took place on 7 December 2014. As you might notice quickly, almost everything here is work-in-progress, even though this adventure has already been going on over 6 years!
(Hackuarium's official 'birthday' btw is 13Aug2014.)

Scroll down and find out what this is all about!

BIG NEWS:
Virion.png
Open Science and Participatory Research are hot!
Nonetheless,
Make the World more Safe by getting Vaccinated, if you haven't yet.
To avoid getting or spreading around Covid-19, the disease caused by SARS CoV-2:
1) Wash hands, especially before you touch your face.
2) Wear a mask when you can't keep physically distant from others.
3) Be responsible about trace-ability and keeping quarantine if you are in contact with anyone who has tested positive for the virus.


Hackuarium can be found at Route de Crochy 20, 1024 Ecublens
With its P1 lab on the southern side with three sets of windows, and the 'inner lab' for fluorescence, bioilluminescence, and some chemistry, Hackuarium is well set up. The context of the cooperative we formed, esp with members of Octanis and Polymeka (plus a few startups*), means possibilities for exploring and making in this peaceful corner of Ecublens are virtually endless!

TO NOTE:
1) This fabulous location, by the Crochy metro stop, even, is unfortunately already destined for destruction, so we are on the look out for a new space!
*** (Please pass on any leads you might have in this regard.)
2) This wiki page is currently - June 2020 - being edited for the first time since dec2019! looking forward to members adding some more info for 2020.
3) Have a look at our Activity Report 2021
Everyone is welcome to our weekly Open Hackuarium meetings, continuing every Wednesday (still possibly virtually, in case of covid-19 incidence) 20:00-22:00 (contact us to rsvp and potentially for the zoom link at 'hello'(at)hackuarium (dot)ch *)

Support for our aims to democratise science can come in many forms, but active membership is of course the most fun for 'do-it-together' research...
Check out what we do, maybe join in for a workshop, and perhaps even come and join us!

Check the list below for other upcoming events.

What is DIYbio?

DIYbio (Do-It-Yourself biology) is a movement that wants to free the practice of biological research and innovation from the institutional and industrial laboratories. Pursued both by amateurs and professional biologists, DIYbio is developing low-cost and low-tech solutions to problems identified by the community.

The movement is characterised by an extremely diverse set of practices and participants. Some call themselves 'biohackers', in reference to the hacker culture. The quick solution (even if unconventional) is what is meant by hacks...

DIYbio.org and DIYbio.eu are the portals of the international and european communities, respectively.

For more information, visit the Wikipedia page dedicated to DIYbio.

We actually believe more and more in doing DIT (Do-It-Together) Research, not just 'DIYbio,' as this seems much better for Open Science, and reflects better the scope of the trans-disciplinary projects we do (often not only biology). Another term people like to use is DIWO (Do It With Others)!


What is Hackuarium?

Hackuarium is a not-for-profit association aiming to democratise science through public engagement.

Our laboratories in Ecublens (Switzerland) are open to anyone sharing the values of the association and dedicated to follow the DIYbio Europe ethical guidelines.

Our projects are initiated and carried out by scientists and non-scientists from a variety of backgrounds. They are passionate about tinkering with biology in particular, and technology in general. Some are engineers, architects, designers, IT and computer scientists or retired professionals, but others have no scientific education. They are mostly citizens interested in open and participatory research and innovation, outside the constraints of traditional institutions.

Hackuarium members want to investigate new ways of carrying out interdisciplinary research and innovation, by making their results open, accessible (low-cost), simple and easily reproducible (low-tech) and by promoting an open source philosophy.

And if you are curious where the name comes from, take a look here.

For some History, you know what to do... ;)
To make a long story short, Hackuarium found a new home (yay!) in Ecublens, for the moment, with some like minds!
A cooperative (Space Alliance Coopérative) with two other associations (Octanis & Polymeka) and a few other startups came together to look for a new place to call home and provide space for everyone's projects and work. Our first activities at Route de Crochy 20 started in February 2019.


Where are we located?

Route de Crochy 20, CH-1024 Écublens, Switzerland (Ouest lausannois, m1 Crochy)

The overall map of the new space is shown to the right, with the new Hackuarium located primary in two rooms (marked with our little purple open science octopus logo).
map of the space

The biolab is located in a south facing room of over 22m2, with three windows and a linoleum floor.
We also have a so-called 'inner sanctum' without windows, that is mainly for electronics and chemistry work, but can also be used for some biology studies, especially higher resolution microscopy (also with a Raspberry Pi camera on the old Zeiss scope, and with the option to try the OpenFlexure :) and bioluminescence studies, but growth of cultures is not allowed in this space.
(there is a carpet!)
There are also other Hackuarium 'assets' around the corner from the biolab, shown as purple rectangles on the map and including the sterile hood and the ultracentrifuge. A closet also contains a great deal of consumables and other labware. (We welcome project ideas that will use some of this! :)
To note once more: this building is really only a provisional space, as it is destined for destruction in the next 3-5 years!
We will continue to look for a more permanent space, while developing our community further and promoting Open Science!
Of course the problem with 'corona' is a new challenge for us all to surmount... Our biolab, with controlled P1 access, and the 'inner sanctum' for electronics and imagerie and more are already facilitating project experiments, even the #coronadetective, with more fun in the pipeline with our coop colleagues, like Sam and Raffael from Octanis, who were also early members of Hackuarium. In fact, Octanis was 'born' as a Hackuarium project, luckily for everyone... They are even now giving the old Hackuarium bioreactor project new life, and providing expertise for the new openflexure epifluorescence build!  :)



Who are we?

Our members reflect the diversity that is in and around the Lausanne area.

Check us out, and find out what makes Hackuarium a good mix.

    Practical Information

    Rules at Hackuarium

    We have very few rules at Hackuarium. The goal of the association is to provide freedom to its members, so they can explore beyond what is allowed elsewhere. However, we want members and anyone participating in our activities to feel comfortable and respected, and, especially for biosafety and the P1 lab, we want to make sure members always follow the rules.

    This page describes the code of conduct for Hackuarium members.

    Use of the Biolab (P1 lab=Biosafety Level 1 experiments possible)

    As of November 2017, Hackuarium was officially hosting its own P1 laboratory. While we still lacked some essential infrastructure (-80 freezer, ventilated fume hood), we were (and still are!) working on it... More can be found out about use of that previous facility by following the next link... P1 Lab Activities However, the new space in Ecublens has even more challenges, with the sterile hood not even fitting in the doors (or windows even) of the Biolab! So, while we indeed hoped to again qualify as an official P1, we were not yet sure intil 6June2019, when a visitor from Bern (mandataire from BAFU) came to the lab to inspect everything, and ended up telling us to go on ahead and work (after admin details sorted - address change with BAFU)! What great news!
    The Biolab Use and Safety page specifies equipment and standard operating procedures in the lab in the context of the cooperative in Ecublens.
    12 members have already done the intro to biosecurity (but not all have yet signed their waivers!) and will have 24/7 access to the lab.
    Interested in developing a project with us?
    We look forward to seeing you there!

    Protocols

    Many protocols that we use at Hackuarium will be found here (work in progress). They are detailed and structured so that the main focus is on applications. The idea is to give crucial information on how to apply the most common techniques of the Biology toolbox. The protocols are structured as follow:

  • A scheme describing each
  • A brief description of the protocol and its use
  • A description of the different ways of carrying out the protocol. Ideally there should be a description of a commercial kit and a DIY kit.
  • A description of the safety issues and best practice
  • Information specific to Hackuarium and where to find the components, tools and reagents.
  • Imre's SynBio recources for advanced cloners
    The Corona Detective wiki page with links to protocols

    Consumables in stock

    You can check online the [consumables in stock].

    Instruments available

    This page describes all the instruments available at Hackuarium (work in progress..), their location and how to use them.

    A list of instruments we still need

    This on-line document contains a list of instruments, tools and consumables we are looking for generally. We could also greatly use an ordinary dissecting scope (binocular loupe) with non-heating illumination for manipulations of microbes of all sorts (i.e. for the Moss Menageries). We have a standard donation contract (contrat de donation, in French) and if your organisation happens to want to discard a piece of equipment we are (or may be) looking for, contact us!

    Where we shop

    As a general rule, we do not buy anything. We try to recycle, upcycle, bicycle, epicycle anything we can, or ask around if anyone can provide supplies for free.

    In some cases it does not work out, and so these are the place where we can find what we need.

    In any case, Please contact a member of the Board, if you need to order anything in the name of Hackuarium.

    Labware and Reagents

    Consumables and some chemicals can be purchased from Huber Lab.
    More chemicals can be obtained from Carl Roth.
    If necessary, other chemicals and biochemicals can be obtained from Sigma Aldrich.
    Molecular biology tools can be purchased from Qiagen.

    Swiss-based Smiples has a very extensive listing of second hand laboratory and technical items. These can be bought from their online shop or from Ricardo.
    But most laboratory hardware can be obtained from our network of friends and partners. Get in touch with Luc Henry if you need anything specific and we'll do our best to find it.

    Organic

    Algae, protozoa, aquatic life and educational kits: | Sciento
    Bacteria, global biosource center (Hackuarium has a customer account, shop through our Biosecurity manager): | ATCC
    Carolina.com is another source, much less expensive than ATCC for (for instance) the rhizobial bacterial strain!
