Bio-Rad ELISA Immuno Explorer™ Kit
Biology’s magic bullet? Unleash nature’s tool kit and the power of antibody specificity to explore health science and immunology. In this hands-on workshop you will perform an ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay), a real-world antibody-based assay used to diagnose HIV/AIDS or bird flu, and to detect the molecular markers of cancer, pregnancy, and drug use. Germs spread via human contact, water, food, and the air - whether they emerge naturally or through acts of aggression. You will also learn to simulate a disease outbreak in your classroom and use ELISA to detect and track it. Designed for biology, physiology, anatomy, and health science courses. Learn key background and how to prep the lab. Do exactly what your students will do.
