  • KU Biology labs generate lots of dirty glassware - requiring many of our student researchers to use their precious research time washing and rinsing glassware to ensure that they meet our demanding experimental requirements
  • Our goal is to purchase two research grade laboratory glassware washers that will allow our dedicated students throughout KU Biology to spend more time actually doing research rather than preparing glassware for it
  • If we can raise $70K by August 31, 2015, we can save $12K on the purchase of two large capacity washers with state-of-the art features required for ensuring clean glassware that meets the rigorous requirements for today's modern research throughout KU Biology

Please consider making a gift at any level to help us raise the funds we need by August 31st!
