We are part of the TECNOx, ReClone and GOSH communities/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.


Open resources (protocols, devices, images…)

Open biofabrication protocols (fungi materials and devices of our collaborators at Biofab UC and LABVA)



GOSH Gathering for Open Science Hardware 

The Global Open Science Hardware (GOSH) movement seeks to reduce barriers between diverse creators and users of scientific tools to support the pursuit and growth of knowledge.
