About the BioShop

The BioShop is an in-house machine, electronic, and wood shop. They service lab equipment and construct custom shelving and lab furniture. Click here for a complete list of services.

The KU BioShop is able to provide many services to the Molecular Biosciences, Ecology and Evolutionary Biosciences, and KU Undergraduate Biology departments. These services are offered as part of the general support infrastructure for research and education. Because the BioShop fills a support role, labor is not billed to EEB, MB, or KUUB. Only supplies and parts are billed making the bioshop a potential for great cost savings when compared to having the same work done by outside for profit businesses.
