Product Details

Students engage in a complete investigation in which they gather sample food items from the

grocery store, extract DNA from the samples, amplify the DNA using polymerase chain reaction

(PCR), and use agarose gel electrophoresis to test for the presence of two DNA sequences

that are present in >85% of genetically modified (GM) crops.

Use the real-time PCR version of this kit to quantitate and determine what fraction of the

food product is made with genetically modified ingredients, in the same manner as standard

testing laboratories do.

Kit includes positive control, InstaGene matrix, master mix, primers, dye, test tubes/holders,

curriculum, and more for 32 students. See website for cost-saving bundles with electrophoresis

reagents.
