About

Welcome!

My name is Michael Buettner and I’m the┬áresearch facilities manager at the MINT Center, Univ. of Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

Throughout my career working in research labs I always found myself in charge of maintaining, repairing, and upgrading research equipment, often poorly documented and decades old instruments. Googling my way through the web I sometimes came across blog posts that just had the right, very specific information I needed, tricks-of-the-trade-type of information that was hard to come by otherwise.

In this sense I’d like to use this blog to publish projects and ideas related to my work that others hopefully may find useful.
