Beginning—Easy to perform; requires no experience in microbiology.

For a class of 30. Let your students write short secret messages to each other. Students "write" (inoculate) a brief message on photobacterium agar dishes using the bioluminescent bacterium Vibrio fischeri. After 24 hours of incubation, they "read" each others' messages in a dark room. With teacher instructions.

Note: Store bacteria upright in envelope with cap loosened a quarter turn and at room temperature. For best results, use within 1 to 2 days of receipt due to bacteria's bioluminescent phase.

** Kit and perishable components will ship separately and may arrive on different days.

For Educational Use Only. All orders are subject to Carolina’s Terms and Conditions
