Description: This teacher demonstration kit contains fully illustrated instructions, one set of mini apparatus and sufficient materials for two demonstrations. The Carolina Biological Exploring Electrophoresis of DNA Kits contain everything needed for students to separate mixtures of pre-cut DNA fragments using samples of lambda DNA cut with EcoRI and HindIII along with uncut DNA to effectively demonstrate the action of restriction enzymes and the principles of electrophoresis. Gels can be run in 3.5 hours using three 9V batteries or overnight with one battery. The apparatus consists of a gel chamber and comb, micro-pipettes and connecting cables, and the materials included are agarose, concentrated TBE buffer, ready-to-use pre-digested DNA samples which are stable at room temperature, CarolinaBLU® DNA stain, pipette tips and carbon fibre electrodes. To run the experiments you will also need 9 volt batteries or equivalent DC power supply. The use of mains power is not recommended for this apparatus.
Qty: 1 kit including 1 mini apparatus
- The full classroom activity kit G2.98CK contains fully illustrated instructions, five sets of apparatus and sufficient materials for ten experiments.
- The refill kit G2.98CK-RK for the classroom activity kit contains sufficient materials for ten experiments.
- G2.98CK-DNA is a kit for replacement of the DNA samples only, sufficient for ten experiments
- If you are not going to use the DNA within 30 days we recommend that the DNA samples be kept in the freezer until such time as you are ready to use them.
