Success Guarantee

Amino Labs is a pioneer in making learning and doing biotechnology accessible and affordable. Amino Labs is so confident in its products that we back Engineer-it Kits and Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero packs with the Success Guarantee. This means that we guarantee you will be successful in completing the Engineer-it Kit Genetic Engineering exercise when used with a DNA Playground - even if you didn’t get there the first time.

In order to qualify for the Success Guarantee, you must have completed Virtual Bioengineer: Engineer-it kit edition. This is an excellent tool that simulates the Engineer-it Kit experience and helps you practice before doing the real thing! 

If, at the end of your Engineer-it Kit experiment, you were not successful in achieving growth of engineered cells, we will ship you another Engineer-it Kit — FREE! All you have to do is contact us at and provide us with the following information:

  • A 100-500 word description of what you think might have gone wrong.
Use our TroubleShooting Guide to help you through the process and to help you diagnose what might have gone wrong.
