Simulate Genetic Diagnosis of Sickle Cell Anemia
- Real world relevance
- Time required: 45 minutes
This simple lab demonstrates detection of the mutation that causes Sickle Cell Anemia. In this simulation, your students will use electrophoresis to separate dyes that represent patient samples and controls
Kit includes: instructions, Ready-to-Load™ dye samples, agarose powder, practice gel loading solution, electrophoresis buffer, microtipped transfer pipettes.
Required, but not included: electrophoresis apparatus, power supply, microwave or hot plate.
