Teacher Make & Take: Gel Electrophoresis

  • Thursday, March 03, 2016
  • 5:00pm - 6:30pm

Are gel electrophoresis labs too expensive to do with your students? Come to the Micro World Investigate Lab and learn how to make a DIY gel electrophoresis unit out of used tip boxes, 9 volt batteries and paperclips. Also explore alternatives to using agarose for the separation matrix. Materials will be provided so that each participant takes a working electrophoresis unit back to their classroom.
