An interesting hands-on lab activity that teaches students the skills required for the isolation of bacteria from test samples. This kit teaches aseptic handling techniques and cultivation of bacteria.
Using bacterial culture techniques, students discover and isolate the bacteria present in the soil around us. Following isolation of bacteria, students characterize the bacteria with household products and antibiotics.
In addition, students can characterize bacteria with the included Gram Staining Kit. Students learn and understand the significance of bacterial isolation in applied biotechnology.
Supplied with components needed for hands-on experimentation for six workstations of 4-5 students or 24-30 students. Supplied with Teacher’s Guide and separate Student’s Guides.
