Osmosis and the Cell Membrane 8-Station Kit

(in stock)


Grade 9–College. Give your students a simple way to perform osmosis and diffusion experiments with this kit. Students use Carolina® Osmosis Chambers (item #684270) and nanofiltration membranes that allow water molecules to pass through but not larger molecules, such as sugars. Glucose and sucrose solutions are injected into each chamber using a pipette. Students observe changes in volume on each side of the chamber and make both qualitative and quantitative observations. This 8-station kit provides enough materials for 8 groups of 2 to 3 students, plus FREE 1-year access to digital resources that include lab sheets, setup videos, and even a template so your students can cut membranes out of other materials such as dialysis tubing.
