Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product was interesting and easy to use. I used this with my middle school biology class and they had fun cutting the pieces off, transferring it to the new agar and watching it glow and become bioluminescent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting but less impressive than luminescent bacteria Very nice Kit, The luminescence is clearly visible after dark adaptation. If no dark room is available, the luminescence is difficult to see. I also used a luminometer wich gave very nice pictures. Compared to the bioluminescent bacteria, the luminescence is more difficult to see, but for demos, it is nice to have more living materials from different kindoms...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work; not worth the price I was very excited to use this product. It would have been great for when we covered the fungi kingdom and discussed adaptations. This product however did NOT meet my expectations. We carefully followed directions in class however none of the petri dishes cultivated the fungus. All we grew was mold. It was definitely a total waste of money. I would not buy this product again or recommend this at all.
