Your students are medical professionals trying to save a patient's life by identifying a virus that causes the disease. The GenoSensor Viral Infection Kit is designed to be a tool for introducing students to isothermal amplification technology and genetic diversity while focusing on its real-life use of DNA technology in bioscience, microbiology, and toxicology.
Used in lab class or take-home kit.
Scenario: Two patients came into the emergency room with fever and cough. The doctors would like to know if they suffer from viral infection. Fluid samples are collected and tested for the virus.
DNA samples Plasmid DNA is used to emulate the virus. Two samples are given and students will find out which patient(s) is infected.
Simple and fast protocol for easy integration into classrooms such as Introductory or General Biology. Anyone can do it!
Teach now isothermal amplification technology, no equipment needed, easy and fast, ideal for real-world field diagnosis or detections.
