SARS-CoV-2 is a novel coronavirus that has caused a worldwide outbreak of respiratory disease beginning in 2019. In this simulated medical test, we will use electrophoresis to detect the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in samples from patients with symptoms of COVID-19.
• Hands-on simulation of molecular testing for COVID-19
• Students learn about the characteristics of coronaviruses
• Electrophoresis is used to analyze simulated RT-PCR samples
Kit includes: instructions, ready to load DNA samples, agarose powder, practice gel loading solution, electrophoresis buffer, DNA stain and fine tipped transfer pipettes.
All you need: electrophoresis equipment and micropipettes.
Time required: 45 minutes.
