EBPI goes into Outer Space In 2015, Jeff Short contacted EBPI in hopes of placing the first mutation assay into outer space to understand how rates of mutation differ on earth from those in outer space.   Through the 2015 Pathway to Adventure Council and Boy Scouts of America, sponsored by the Center for Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) work began.   EBPI’s Ames 384-ISO was chosen based on it reliability, ease of use and compact form.  We have been saying for a long time that EBPI’s kits are out of this world, and now they truly are!
