Carolina presents a truly unique biotechnology simulator

Powered by Unreal Engine®. Bring open-world exploration of biotechnology into your classroom! This simulator allows you to explore a biotechnology laboratory, hone your skills, and test your knowledge of the procedural steps and equipment used for a bacterial transformation lab. As the simulation's laboratory tour begins, you'll walk down our hall and into the bacterial transformation lab. There you will inspect the equipment and reagents to be used. You then will be required to answer a series of questions relating to the equipment, procedure, and concepts of bacterial transformation. Once successful, you will move into the laboratory exercise. This is where you will perform transformations using 4 different kinds of plasmids: pAMP, pGREEN, pBLU®, and pVIB.

This interactive simulator is based on Carolina's bacterial transformation kit protocols and follows those procedures step-by-step. With full functionality, the software lets YOU pick the single colonies, YOU perform the heat shock, YOU perform the experiment, and YOU see real results!

Use this lab simulation as a virtual or remote-learning standalone resource or as an introductory activity prior to performing the hands-on lab. The simulation can help students become familiar with lab vocabulary and procedures before actually performing the lab.

As a teacher, you will have access to a learning management system, whereby you set up users and give them permission to access the tours, testing site exercises, and more. You can manage user progress by reviewing scores and managing log time.

Powered by the Unreal Engine®, you and your students will experience life-like smooth graphics while engaged in a fun, familiar format. Deliver bacterial transformation labs in a new, safe, and effective environment. License duration is 1 year (12 months) from date of activation for up to 24 users.
