Electrophoresis is a fundamental skill used daily in the molecular biology laboratory. Bridge the gap between textbook science and students' lives by using dyes extracted from sweet coatings to perform agarose gel electrophoresis. Bio-Rad's IDEA Kit is a dazzling way for students to learn the basics of this key technique using dyes that are commonly found in the foods they eat. Combine this with the power of enquiry to encourage your students to ask questions and seek answers. What dye combinations create the colours in the hard-shell sweets of their choice? Do red and blue make purple? Is pink really pink? The colourful results may surprise you and will certainly get your students talking about their discoveries. Kit contains sufficient materials for 8 student workstations (2-4 students per workstation).
