ATP Muscle Kit

$9.95 - $133.50

Grade 9–College. Students can observe and measure the contraction of real muscle tissue. The kit features glycerinated (preserved) muscle tissue that amazingly retains the ability to contract when ATP and the appropriate ions are added. The glycerinated muscle is processed from striated muscle tissue. During processing, much of the water-soluble content is extracted in cold glycerol, while the striations are left intact and can be easily observed under low-power magnification.
