DNA Playground™ - Beginner Minilab

Start the journey into DNA technology with the intuitive equipment that helps you engineer and grow bacteria like a professional.

The DNA playground enables you to insert DNA programs into bacteria efficiently and without a mess. For teachers, students, and makers. Use the DNA Playground™ during the Amino Labs Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero journey! The DNA Playground 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! 

The DNA Playground is a heating and cooling all-in-one unit with touch controls and sensors; it saves 1-2 hours of setup/cleanup time.

The DNA Playground replaces the need for:

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

There are two different versions of the DNA Playground: Home & Large (choose in the drop-down menu)

The DNA Playground Home: Enables one individual/group to complete one Amino Labs experiment at a time. This smaller unit is compatible with all Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero exercises with the exception of the RGB Kit in Chapter 7.

DNA Playground Large: Enables up to four individuals/groups to do up to four Amino Labs experiments at a time. The DNA Playground large is typically used in the classroom environment, however, if you're an at home-learner, a DNA Playground Large will allow you more flexibility in the future if you choose to start doing your own experiments! The DNA Playground Large is compatible with all Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero exercises.

 

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.
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

 

The DNA Playgrounds empower and engage students as the students are able to control and monitor the temperature stations via the touchscreen. These minilabs are unlike any other genetic engineering equipment out there - they are designed for students that have no-prior knowledge of using traditional biotechnology equipment!
