Constructing Model Viruses - Student Activity Kit
Despite their role in common infections, viruses appear to be alien life forms, with cage-like, helical, and spaceship-like shapes. Explore the biological niche of viruses by building model viruses and investigating their biochemical make-up. Student...
West Nile Virus Transmission - Super Value Game
The vector-borne disease, West Nile Virus, began in Uganda and was first documented in the United States in New York City. It has since spread to every state across the country. Depending on the organisms infected, some species can be virtually elimi...
AIDS- Transfer of Body Fluids Kit
A graphic and exciting activity that is sure to provoke discussion! Students simulate the exchange of body fluids as a means of spreading the HIV virus. Use this kit to initiate a discussion of the transmission of AIDS and other sexually-transmitted ...
AIDS: Simulation of HIV-1 Detection Kit
This experiment is a simulation of screening for antibodies against human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1). Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) is currently used as an initial clinical screening of the blood supply for HIV-1. Students add simulat...
AIDS Simulation Testing Kit
Many laboratory procedures have been designed to detect the presence of antibodies and the interactions between antigens and antibodies. One such test, ELISA-Enzyme linked immunosorbent assay-has received popular notice recently due to its use in det...
A Molecular Approach to Understanding HIV
A comprehensive module on the molecular biology of the HIV virus. Students build their own RNA and DNA models, develop a hands-on understanding of how genetic information is transmitted in biological systems, and learn how RNA is reverse transcribed ...
ELISA—Biology Demonstration Kit
ELISA is an acronym for the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay—a widely used test to screen patients for allergies or certain diseases. In this interactive demonstration, you will guide your students through a realistic simulation of the steps involve...
Antibody Function—Student Activity Kit
The human body is constantly exposed to microbes, toxins, dust and pollen—foreign substances that are potentially harmful and may cause disease. One of the most important defenses the body uses to fight these foreign antigens is the production of ant...
Infection! Epidemic Simulation - Super Value Laboratory Kit
Have you ever been sick and wondered where you got it? Diseases may be spread by the exchange of body fluids, such as saliva, from one host to another. In this activity, the exchange of simulated saliva mimics the sharing of a beverage contaminated w...
The Epidemic - Student Laboratory Kit
How is an epidemic started? Can it be stopped? Students simulate the movement of a deadly pathogen as they become “world travelers.” How easily will it travel from one international city to another when students simply shake hands? An excellent simul...
Outbreak: A Study In Epidemiology - Student Laboratory Kit
Students become Center for Disease Control scientists as they uncover the source of a serious epidemic in a school. The scenario takes advantage of one of the most familiar and contagious school diseases-conjunctivitis (pinkeye). The students first p...
Diagnosis: You are the Doctor - Super Value Laboratory Kit
Doctors are trained to recognize the signs and symptoms of numerous diseases. Many diseases have common symptoms, which make it difficult to distinguish one from another. In addition, patients are sometimes afflicted with more than one ailment at a t...
