Carolina® Easy Fly® Dihybrid Cross Kit (with perishables)

(in stock)


Intermediate—Easy to perform; requires some background knowledge.
Experiments with Drosophila just got easier. With Easy Fly®, you don't have to collect virgins for controlled crosses. Easy Fly® does it for you. Each Easy Fly® culture is heat shocked prior to shipping, which kills all the males. Adults and pupae in an Easy Fly® culture are all females. In this kit, students study dihybrid inheritance by crossing apterous (wingless) males with sepia (brown eye color) Easy Fly® females. Materials are sufficient for a class of 32 students working in groups of 4.

Note: Kit ships with the perishable materials included, for immediate use. Please order at least 2 weeks in advance of desired ship date. Keep Drosophila cultures at room temperature; do not refrigerate. Drosophila Culture Kit is shipped via surface mail only.
