Activate cells with light.
- Safety First! The kit uses a non-pathogenic strain of E. coli (K-12)

- Recommended for use with Amino Labs DNA Playground™ (available separately)
This kit allows you to control color pigments that the cell has been engineered to produce - using LIGHT! The most advanced light induction system in the world, this system allows you to use three different colors of light to turn one, two or all three unique color producing genes - Genetic engineering truly is amazing!
In this kit, students will: Make selective agar, pour petri dishes, streak bacteria, paint with bacteria to create ‘living art’, incubate under specific light condition, see results under UV light.
Additional equipment required but not included: Microwave or hot-plate, microcentrifuge, black-light and LARGE Amino Labs DNA Playground™ (comes with built-in RGB LED). If you have the Small Amino Labs DNA Playground™ you'll need to purchase one of the LED add-ons.
