In this Science Buddies science project, you will test whether caffeine has an effect on heart rate, using the freshwater crustacean, Daphnia magna, as an experimental model system. You can customize this kit to include the Daphnia magna culture kit, a fine-mesh net, caffeine, and other supplies needed to complete this experiment.

In this project, water fleas (Daphnia magna), a semi-transparent freshwater crustacean, are used to study the effects of caffeine on heart rate. Don't worry about having to learn how to take a crustacean's pulse: you can actually see the heart beating under a microscope. Many variations of this experiment are possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Project This was a great project for my daughter’s science fair project. We both learned so much and got a great grade. I would recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very healthy culture! Well over a month ago, my daughter and I purchased a daphnia kit and two separate containers of daphnia for her science fair project. She was studying water toxicity on daphnia and because we have a microscope, it was perfect! Not only did her project work successfully, but we were able to have a "for fun tank" that was just purely for fun under the microscope. It is now almost two months later and we still have daphnia left. We have since ordered other kits from Carolina since we are very happy with the quality that we received. It turned into a fun family event.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good water. I use it to keep my daphnia and algae growing and for replenishing my pond water aquarium. The change in containers is not as welcome. The older gallon containers were easier to carry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good The product is good. When I got culture of Daphnia 75% were alive. Easy to cultivate in lab.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Daphnia magna worked great, but they're hard to keep alive Like the directions said, it was very difficult to keep this species of daphnia alive for very long. I had trouble keeping them alive for just a few days. The first shipment arrived with about an 80% mortality rate (apparently the plane had been held up for hours on the runway), but Carolina quickly replaced them and I had them here the next week. When I do this lab in the future, I will keep all of the daphnia in the containers which they are shipped in and do the lab within two days of the arrival date.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sterile and inexpensive. These 100x15 mm petri dishes were a good size and a great price. Get more than you think you'll need so that you won't have to reorder (at least 20 per 500 ml nutrient agar). We had no contamination in our petri dishes that we prepared with the Carolina 500 ml nutrient agar bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Efficient The product completes its purpose. It came to me quick and easy.
