Hands-on simulation of molecular testing for COVID-19.
- Students learn about characteristics of Coronaviruses
- Includes all required reagents
- Use DNA Electrophoresis to analyze simulated samples
- Activity can be completed in 45 minutes
SARS-CoV-2 is a novel coronavirus that has caused a worldwide outbreak of respiratory disease beginning in 2019.
In this simulated medical test, we will use electrophoresis to detect the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in samples from patients with symptoms of COVID-19.
Additional items needed but not included: DNA electrophoresis equipment, white-light box, microwave or hot plate.
Ordering information: Kit will ship immediately upon ordering. Please call to specify a future shipping date.
Caution: Store DNA samples in the refrigerator. All other components may be stored at room temperature.
