I am married to Spiderbaby and live in Banbury, Oxfordshire after eight years living in the USA and Sweden. I am working and training as a clinical scientist for the NHS in Oxford.

There are now over ten years of photographs on my blog! It all started with a photograph I took on the 1st of May 2004... It's been a wonderful journey, thank you all who have shared it with me, and made this blogging community one I keep coming back to!

Interesting things I read recently:

"Only one in five people born [in the UK] since 1975 believes in God".

"For every dollar invested in the Human Genome project, $141 was returned to the US economy". Francis Collins, NIH

I am Pavlovs_dog on PSN and would be happy to link up with Playstation-owning mobloggers : )

Too Much Information: The first album I ever bought was the Fraggle Rock soundtrack. Pretty cool, eh? I was only 16 : )

Recent 3D printing projects

(viewed 564 times)
We freeze a lot of biological samples at -80 or -120 degrees, and the cardboard inserts in the boxes we use frankly disintegrate after a few freeze/thaw cycles. I designed replacement inserts for manufacture on the Makerbot. The design was simple enough although the thicker plastic means there is less space for tubes. Hopefully it will prove more robust, and if so might work out cheaper in the long run.

The other design is an adapter for a vacuum line that should allow the user to aspirate multiple tissue culture dishes at once. It is shown here being printed in two halves. Still working on that one...
