$146.25 - $146.25 View Details

A safe classroom exercise in which students produce a new strain of viable bacteria. The genetic manipulation conducted is similar to more complex procedures common in modern genetic engineering. Through bacterial conjugation, substituted sex factors (F plasmids bearing lac operon genes) are transferred to a background genome expressing antibiotic resistance. Indicator and selective agar media are used to identify and isolate the hybrid cells. Cultures require incubation. Designed for 6 teams.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs work I have reported this every time and have received replacements.......BUT, If the QC people would just make sure that the broth tubes are properly tightened and packed in the box right side up, the empty and half empty broth tubes that I consistantly receive could be avoided. One shipment had questionable agar bottles with separated layers. They were alright in the end but harder to mix and pour.
