Snow Globe DNA Extraction Kit

What is DNA? Snow Globe edition!

You may not realize it, but you eat lots of DNA every day! But how much?...and what is DNA really? Can I see it? With this Incredible DNA Extraction Kit, you can! 

This STEM science project kit takes you through a journey of extracting the genomic DNA from the cells that make up a strawberry. In just 15 minutes or less, you’ll be able to see just how much DNA exists within a typical strawberry - probably A LOT more than you think! 

This is an all-in-one STEM project kit with no prior experience necessary. A perfect first step in your journey exploring the world of biotechnology, biohacking & genetic engineering. Compatible with Ch. 1 of the Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero book to learn what is DNA, what is DNA made of, what is DNA's function, what is its structure and how can DNA be leveraged in biotechnology to make with biology.

For this one day DNA science project, you will:

  1. Mix salt & water with a mashed strawberry
  2. mix in some lysis buffer
  3. pass the mixture through a filter
  4. pour the resulting liquid in isopropyl alcohol inside a globe
  5. see real DNA molecules float!
  6. hang on your tree!

Included:

This kit comes with the all scientific buffers and consumables needed to complete the experiment: lysis buffer, sterile water, electrolyte, filter, colored dye, and a globe for your isopropyl alcohol. 

You need to provide:

A strawberry, 9 mL of isopropyl alcohol, a cup (like a drinking glass)

No necessary laboratory equipment. Cleaning and safety supplies are not included. For this beginner's kits, these optional supplies are latex or nitrile gloves, and a surface cleaner... strawberry spills can happen! 

Kits are shipped 1-5 days after you place your order. If you require yours for a specific date or event, please contact us prior to, or with your order # so that we can try to make it happen for you! ☺︎ 

The kit(s) may be refrigerated upon arrival for longer shelf life.
