Real world applications; any water sample can be tested.
- Continued learning–students don't have to stop at the PCR test
- Fast and simple protocol for easy integration into biotechnology or public health lessons
The water we drink is put through large amounts of testing to make sure that it's safe for us to drink. The Water Analysis kit gives students the opportunity to test water samples from their own environment, and through PCR detect the presence of bacterial contaminants.
