Cancer cells differ from normal cells by the combinations of proteins that are present on their surfaces. Antibodies against these proteins will specifically bind to cancer cells and not to normal cells. This allows early detection of cancer and potentially a way of delivering cancer therapies.
In this Edvotek simulation experiment the reaction of cancer cell markers and their corresponding antigens are demonstrated.
Kit includes: instructions, microtitre plates, cancer cell markers, normal cell markers, transfer pipettes, buffer.
All you need: water, optional - 5 to 50ul variable micropipettes.
Time required: 35 minutes.
For 10 groups of students.
