It's mostly actual equipment. Little diy. I've got a Barnstead still with collection jug. Biosafety cabinet (overkill, but got cheaper than laminar, and it is just a laminar cabinet with extra features protecting user AND samples). Analytical balance. Hotplate stirrer. 10/100/200/1000uL pipettes. Accumet pH meter. Magenta TC vessels (glass and plastic).
But also things a utility bench for lab bench. 14qt electric pressure cooker for a stand in autoclave. Panty rack with 4 bulb t5 HO fixtures wired over each shelf for grow space.
Still need a mini fridge and dessicator for chems like MS salts. Microwave for media prep that hasn't had food cooked in it. Pipette tips for everything but 1000uL. New pH probe. Hormones. Basal salts. Other media supplements.
And about $600-800 in plants I plan to use not only in culture to start operation but to fill out the massive overhaul of a 35g tank I'm also doing simultaneously (new seals, internal sump with fluidized bed, handmade 3d background with sand fall, diy co2 reactor, fugeray2 & planted+ 24/7 on custom acrylic risers on top of tank after I remove rim and replace with euro, oh... And co2. Never used that before. So it's getting co2 tank, controller, and I'm scaping the whole thing with Dennerle soil).
Needless to say my apartment is craaaaaazy disorganized rn. Plumbing testing in bathroom. Foam and concrete work on kitchen table. Spare room becoming lab and grow space. All while working 12.5h shifts in semiconductor foundry, and keeping up with a 3 day raid schedule in mythic guild (#9 dps dealing mage on the server). Things are a bit crazy. And old threads like this with existing responses not only can pull ppl from previously back in to convo with experience in the topic at hand, but have comments already and are more likely to bring in NEW voices to join what they see as an existing convo.
Plus saves time to hit reply rather than back out in this app, start new, title, review it all for spelling and grammar and autocorrect making you look racist or like a jerk or swapping in swear words inappropriately as the op.... >.>
