The Tragic Case of Stan: Laboratory Case Study Investigate infectious diseases safely with this laboratory case study kit. Students examine bacterial growth, applying hands-on skills to learn and practice safe microbiological techniques, including plate streaking, Gram staining, and basic bacterial culturing. Once they master those skills, they then examine antibiotic susceptibility, design an experiment to test for it, and learn to interpret their results. This unique kit was created by scientists at the Center for Translational Science Education at Tufts University. It provides students with a robust learning experience that addresses antibiotic resistance, a real medical problem facing hospitals around the world. Includes a week’s worth of lessons and enough materials for 30 students working in 10 groups of 3. Kit (with perishables) comes with prepared media plates. Kit (with prepaid coupon) comes with melt-and-pour agar and sterile plates for your convenience. Replacement Bacterial Cultures for the kit are sold separately. Note: Order the kit with the perishable materials included or with a prepaid coupon to request perishables later at your convenience. Contact us or return the coupon to request delivery of perishable materials. Refrigerate antibiotic disks and bacterial freezes until use; do not freeze. 154980P Classroom Kit (with perishables) Each $206.90 154982 Classroom Kit (with prepaid coupon) Each $206.90 154981 Replacement Bacterial Cultures Each $42.40 Prokaryotes 37 Living Organisms Are You Cavity Prone? BioKit® Beginning—Easy to perform; requires no experience in microbiology. For a class of 30. Students determine their susceptibility to dental cavities based on the rate at which bacteria from their mouths produce acid in a carbohydrate medium. As the pH of the medium falls, an indicator changes color. The rate at which the medium changes color is correlated with the student’s susceptibility to cavities. Requires 4 days from setup to completion. Note: Order the kit with the perishable material (. item) included or with a prepaid coupon to request perishable material later at your convenience.

BioKit® includes: 31 Snyder Test Agar Tubes. 30 Sterile Dropping Pipets (1 mL) 30 Sterile Petri Dishes 30 Saliva Collection Packets Autoclave Disposal Bag Teacher Instructions and Student Guide Needed but not included: 37° C Incubator 154713 Kit (with prepaid coupon) Each $121.95 154713P Kit (with perishable) Each $121.95 Urine Culture Kit Intermediate—Easy to perform; requires some basic training in microbiology. For a class of 30. Urinary tract infection is one of the most frequently occurring bacterial infections in humans. Urine cultures are commonly performed to diagnose urinary tract infections, so that proper treatment can be prescribed. Students learn what causes these infections and how they may be prevented. They compare cultures from their own urine specimens to 2 positive bacterial controls. Note: Order the kit with the perishable materials (all . items) included or with a prepaid coupon to request perishables later at your convenience. Contact us or return the coupon to request delivery of perishable materials. Keep bacteria cultures at room temperature; do not incubate or refrigerate. Refrigerate agar until use; do not freeze.

Epidemic Simulation Kit Beginning—Easy to perform; requires no experience in microbiology. The ease with which pathogens can spread through a population is very relevant today as we cope with the AIDS epidemic. Using diluted acids and bases as “body fluids,” students engage in a classroom simulation of a spreading epidemic. They then figure out who the original “carrier” was. Students can complete the simulation in 1 class period. The Demonstration Kit is designed for use by 1 class of 30; the Classroom Kit, for use by 4 separate classes of 30 each. A Classroom Refill Kit replenishes all the consumables in the Classroom Kit. With teacher instructions. Kit includes: Solution A (acid) Solution B (base) Phenol Red Solution Dropping Pipets (1 mL) Screw-Cap Tubes Student Data Sheet(s) Marking Pen(s) Envelope(s) 154665R Demonstration Kit Each $47.15 154665 Classroom Kit Each $171.60 154666 Classroom Refill Kit Each $25.75 154665 Epidemic Simulation Classroom Kit 100% satisfaction guaranteed
