  1. The part about opensource/DIY medicine production for regions in need is fair. But farmaceutical companies won't enjoy it so they'll invest as much as they can to stop this spread. Good luck though! And thanks for the vid.

  2. Sir

    This is Sunil Phani. we are amazed to learn about significant work you put in at
    Open Source Biotechnology for Everyone i am fan of your website, your site means a lot for us who are staying in third world countries like in india where poor economic conditions not enabling hemophilia patients to access costly commercial Antihemophilic Factor VIII which is not manufactured in india and importing at high prices is not possible for poor patients in india    

    We are planning to set up a Recombinant ​ Antihemophilic  Factor VIII (recombinant dna protein ) manufacturing unit for an NGO in india to empower poor hemophilic patients with life saving drug like Recombinant ​ Antihemophilic  Factor VIII and reach our goal to achieve “Hemophilia without Disability and Children without pain”  . Due to obvious capital crunch issues, NGO has decided to execute the project in crowdsourcing mode and we are looking for a  eminent partner like you has the expertise to guide us in this projects.
    Because Recombinant  Antihemophilic Factor VIII protein production process line will be similar  to Recombinant Insulin production process line hence after seeing your “DIY Biosynthesis of Insulin and Thyroxine – Disaster Resilience and Personal Biotech”  we thought of seeking your help us by preparing a “DIY Antihemophilia Factor VIII step by step or SOP” 

    once again we humbly request and pray you to help us by providing cell line and every single details to DIY Antihemophilia Factor VIII,

     your act of kindness by helping us will be highly appreciated by every hemophilic in india

    Thanks & Regards,
    Sunil Phani
