Students act as crime scene technicians to figure out which pieces of evidence from multiple crime scenes contain potentially useful DNA information. By detecting amylase activity, students infer the presence/absence of saliva on the evidence.

Students learn why the detection of saliva is important at a crime scene, as well as how the amylase enzyme works. Materials supplied are for 6 groups of 4 students each to examine 4 different pieces of evidence.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Up to Par with other Carolina Products This lab was great in theory, but it was difficult to get the correct results to show up, even in the positive control. Additionally, I had to buy more cotton balls which are inexpensive, but when you are purchasing a kit, it should contain enough of the items it says you have already purchased. I have purchased many other labs from Carolina that I would purchase again in a heartbeat, but not this one.
