Exploring Electrophoresis Single User Reagent Set, 3 lab activities (M3081)

$69.00

 

Introduce your students to molecular biology with the Exploring Electrophoresis Single User Reagent Set. Each single user reagent kit includes enough materials for a single work station to complete 3 activities teaching how to pipette and how electrophoresis works.

Pre-aliquoted for individual workstations, these single user reagent sets are ideal for the busy classroom or in a distance learning environment.

Description

Introduce your students to molecular biology with the Exploring Electrophoresis Single User Reagent Set with materials to teach how to pipette and how electrophoresis works.

First, students will develop  pipetting skills with a 2-part hands-on activity in which they dial a pipette to a volume that corresponds to the amount identified on the pipette practice card, and then practice loading into a soft agar disk with wells, to simulate loading into an agarose gel.

Next, they will separate vibrant candy dyes to see how every day candy colors separate out on a gel, learning about molecular weight and charge’s effects on migration. Bring in inquiry by pouring a 9-well gel to test 3 other candies of your choice at the same time.

The next step is doing electrophoresis with actual DNA samples, and an analysis of the resulting DNA patterns. What better way to do this than helping conservation scientists identify which male whale is likely little Luna’s dad?

The single user reagent sets are pre-aliquoted for an individual workstation making it easy for you to open the pack and start your electrophoresis with even less prep, and include one bag of 2 – 200 µL micropipette tips. These activities require a MiniOne Electrophoresis System with p20 pipette (not included).
