Forensic Science (SBD-5211-KIT)

Price:   $98.55   

Build your own gel electrophoresis chamber and create a forensic science lab at home!  Gel electrophoresis is a common technique used in laboratories to separate and view macromolecules such as DNA, RNA, or proteins.  This kit contains everything you need to build the gel electrophoresis chamber and explore how gel electrophoresis works by comparing molecules in different colors of food coloring.   Once you build the chamber and learn how it works, you can try using strawberry DNA or onion DNA to start exploring how forensic science really works.

Kits contain tested materials to ensure that you have what you need to successfully complete your science project, have fun, and learn some science along the way!
