Membrane microarray technology is enabling scientists to screen large numbers of samples in one assay. It is used widely in research and medical testing. This technology has led to cost savings by reducing the sample size, while saving time and yielding accurate results.
Students will apply simulated DNA and RNA samples to a membrane to screen for positive and negative samples.
Kit includes: instructions, simulated patient DNA and RNA samples, controls, microarray cards, plastic bags to incubate membrane, microtubes, pipettes.
All you need: adjustable or fixed volume micropipettes and tips, distilled water, beakers or flasks.
For 10 student groups.
Time required: 60 minutes.
Shelf life: use within 6 months of receipt.
