Product Details

Conduct a completely safe laboratory investigation to determine human cholesterol levels. Simulated blood of five different individuals will be tested before and after treatment for cholesterol. The test results will provide insight into the succesess and failures of basic cholesterol-lowering treatments. Students will learn that cholesterol is a real paradox-everyone needs it, but too much of a good thing can spell trouble for some people. The components in this cholesterol simulation are safe and contain no actual blood products.Complete for 30 students working in pairs.
