Product Details

DNA is the most conclusive form of evidence to confirm a suspect’s presence at the scene of the crime. Police have narrowed down a list of suspects they think may have committed a series of crimes in the Charleston, SC area. Students run the DNA of three suspects against evidence that was collected from the crime scene to determine the identity of the guilty party.

Complete for six student groups. Electrophoresis chamber, power supply and gel trays are required but not included.


Materials Included in Kit: 
Agarose, LE, 3 g
DNA samples and practice pipetting solution, kept in freezer
Electrophoresis buffer, concentrated 50x, 100 mL
Methylene blue electrophoresis stain, 10x, 100 mL
Pipets, needle tip, disposable, 30
Weighing dish, disposable, 5.5 g, 5½" x 5½", 6

Performance Expectations

HS-PS1-1. Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.
HS-PS2-6. Communicate scientific and technical information about why the molecular-level structure is important in the functioning of designed materials.
HS-LS1-1. Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins, which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells.
HS-LS3-1. Ask questions to clarify relationships about the role of DNA and chromosomes in coding the instructions for characteristic traits passed from parents to offspring.
