DIY Spectrometry

The Public Lab community has worked hard to develop precise and affordable DIY spectrometers for chemical analysis. These are experimental tools, and always being improved. Read more at or get in on the research by putting your own Spectrometer to work.

New Kits on the way

The WheeStat is now available through Public Lab. It is a potentiostat used for measuring concentrations of metal in your water, and is part of a new and growing addition to the Public Lab suite of tools. Also coming soon, the MultispeQ, a device for assessing plant health through a veritable cornucopia of measurements. 3d printed aerial mapping rigs from Chris at the kaptery. Finally, the biggest selfie pole you'll ever need! (doubles as a drone swatter) Read more about incubated projects here
