We are part of the TECNOx and GOSH movements, which promote the adoption and development of Free/Libre and Open Source technologies. By Free/Libre and Open Source, we mean working practices and licenses that guarantee open access to methods, blueprints, documentation and resources as well as freedom to use, modify, sell* and redistribute technology. We apply these principles to the development of FLOS biological technology and scientific instrumentation in Latin America.
