DNA Playground™ Starter Set

Start the journey into genetic engineering and Making with Biology™ with the intuitive equipment and kits that helps you engineer and grow bacteria like a professional. This starter set has everything needed to do hands-on genetic engineering:  make bacteria create pigments! 

The DNA playground™ starter set enables you to insert DNA programs into bacteria efficiently and without a mess. For teachers, students, and makers. The DNA Playground™ works with the Engineer-it Kit™ so that you can engineer bacteria to create colours, dyes, and more. It can be used at home or by educators in schools as a personal and engaging alternative to traditionally large, expensive, and complex lab equipment. DNA Playgrounds reduce genetic engineering class set-up and clean-up time from an hour+ to a few minutes. Get rid of messy ice and water! 

  • (1) DNA Playground™:  the easy-to-use biolab for engineering and growing microorganisms. The DNA Playground can be purchased with or without WiFi capability to give you access to our upcoming online data viewer: see what is happening on your Playground from afar, save experiment data and share results (wifi coming in 2018). 
  • (1) Engineer-it Kit™: all the ingredients needed to create an engineered organisms. Engineer-it Kits come in Individuals (one try) or Group kits (up to 32 tries in groups of 4) at engineering a DNA program into a cell. 
  • Instructions: a manual with easy to understand vocabulary and step by step procedures and the online simulation experiment simulation to practice with, teach you fundamentals and guide you along the way. 

DNA Playground™

Self-contained system: No need to source and buy heated water baths, ice buckets and ice, incubator and thermometers. The DNA Playground™ is a playful collection of all the equipment you need to engineer and grow cells in Petri dishes.
Compact: Easily perform bacterial transformations from the comfort of your desk.
Interested in a modular system: Express interest by email info@amino.bio
Complements the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS): MS-LS1-1, MS-LS1-2, MS-LS1-7& HS-LS1-1, HS-LS1-6, HS-LS3-1
Each DNA Playground™ can do up to 4 simultaneous transformations.

The DNA Playground replaces the need for:

  • Ice/Ice buckets
  • Hot water bath
  • Thermometer
  • Incubator
  • Timer

If you're an educator familiar with genetic engineer experiments, the DNA Playgrounds™ will empower and engage your students as they control and monitor the temperature stations via the touchscreen. If you're an educator who has never done genetic engineering before, these kits are designed for you. All you have to do is try, and you'll be pleasantly surprised with your life science skills!

Engineer-it Kit™
Engineer-it kits are a general experience that can be used as a hands-on activity to complement various modules from middle school to high school. They allow for scaffolded learning and Engineer-it Kits™ are also used in technical colleges and universities.
Self-contained kit: No need to source and buy reagents, chemicals, and consumables. The Engineer-it Kit™ is a convenient collection of all that is needed to engineer and grow cells in Petri dishes.
All reagents tubes are color-coded for ease of use and include illustrated simple procedure.
2 convenient formats: 

Individual kit -  One try, can be done by individuals, groups, family. 

Group kit - Eight transformation tries with 1 shared DNA program - can be done individually or in groups up to 4.
