Bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), better known as mad cow disease, is a neurodegenerative, fatal condition in cattle. Consuming BSE-infected beef is believed to be the cause of a similar condition in humans, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease.

In this Edvotek experiment, students examine simulated PCR products from several feed mills, to determine any possible violations of a 1997 ban which ended the practice of including animal parts in cattle feed.

Kit includes: instructions & Ready-to-Load™ DNA samples for 24 gels.

All you need: electrophoresis apparatus, power supply, agarose powder, buffer solution, automatic micropipet and tips, balance, microwave or hot plate, visualization system.

Time required: 50 minutes.

For 24 gels.
