Abstract

Combinatorial and high-throughput methods are increasingly common in industrial research. Academic institutions are often unable to afford the equipment necessary and to provide the maintenance required for permanent operation. Teaching is often more constrained by budget than by research topics. This article describes a modular course that has been designed to allow an affordable implementation of combinatorial and high-throughput experiments in academic teaching laboratories. Currently, the course consists of five experimental modules and has already been successfully taught on two occasions.
