The EduPrimerTM DNA Profiling kit is designed to introduce students to two dimorphic genes in the Alu family.
- Determine the distribution of two alleles of the Alu genes within your classroom, and across the world
- Introduce students to DNA isolation, PCR and DNA Electrophoresis
- Fast and simple protocol for easy integration into biotechnology lessons
The EduPrimer™ DNA Profiling Kit is designed to introduce students to the principles and applications of PCR, focusing on its real-life use of DNA profiling in forensics and disease research.
Choose between one of two dimorphic genes in the Alu family (TPA-25 or PV92) for a maximum of four shifted DNA bands per student, demonstrating the power of PCR, and teaching the techniques to utilize it.
