Nicolas presented his work developing an open-source, inexpensive control system using Arduino microcontrollers to automate the functionality of the bioreactor systems generating fluid flow (controlling a MasterFlex peristaltic pump), cyclic stretch (controlling a stepper motor), and hydrostatic pressure (controlling a stepper motor). Additionally, he designed and built the housing to enclose all of this equipment.
