Product Details

Bio-Rad Item No.: 17001238EDU

The Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration Kit for AP Biology is a fun, easy to use, and more reliable alternative to the leaf disk and microrespirometer labs. Students can simultaneously explore both photosynthesis and cellular respiration using the same organism (an alga) in a simple colorimetric assay to yield qualitative and/or quantitative results.

This kit aligns directly with AP Biology Big Idea 2 and connects to concepts in Big Ideas 1 and 4. The student and instructor manuals are designed to give teachers the flexibility to conduct the labs as structured, guided and/or open inquiry investigations.

Pkg of 1, 170 algae beads, 50 ml 10x CO2 indicator, 20 ml debeading solution, 100 disposable cuvettes (with caps), 60 disposable plastic transfer pipets, and indicator color guides for 32 students, inquiry-driven curriculum, education use only.


Please note that, though some items may be shipped at ambient temperatures to reduce shipping costs, some items are to be stored refrigerated or frozen upon receipt to ensure longevity.
