Induce-it Kit™

Engineer the genetics of bacteria and control gene expression with a chemical. (Manually control genes!)

Discover the Induce-it Kit, a biotechnology education kit that lets you practice inducing (turning on) gene expression using a chemical. Grow and engineering bacteria with a DNA program, culture the cells and then you decide when you want the DNA program to turn on by adding a chemical to your petri dish.

This is an all-in-one STEM project kit with no prior experience necessary though prior completion of the Canvas kit, and Engineer-it Kit can be helpful and is suggested. A perfect step in your journey exploring the world of biotechnology, biohacking & genetic engineering. Compatible with Ch. 7 of  Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero book to learn what are genes, how to control them manually using genetic switches and how to use them in biotechnology, synthetic biology, and for your science fair projects.

  1. Make selective & non-selective agar,
  2. pour Petri dishes,
  3. streak bacteria,
  4. make bacteria chemically competent,
  5. engineer bacteria using DNA plasmid (bacterial transformation),
  6. create positive and negative controls,
  7. incubate,
  8. culture bacteria,
  9. add inducer,
  10. see results.

During this biotechnology experiment, you will learn how to control genes with heat and how to use that to make with biology.

Contents: 

  • (1) Induce-it Kit in Individual or Group size: Sterile water, 6cm Petri dish, LB agar, selection marker, ‘blank’ bacteria stab, transformation buffer, recovery media, positive control bacteria stab, DNA plasmid, inducer, drop pipet, dissolving buffer, streaking stencils, inactivation bag.
    • Individual Kits: An individual kit with all the ingredients needed for completing one entire science experience. Great for an individual or a small group.
    • Classroom/Group Kits: Four individually packaged kits with the needed ingredients to complete four entire science experiences. 1 shared resources bag containing the bacteria, DNA plasmid, and inactivation bags, which are shared between all participants. Great for the classroom, advanced AP biology, science fair projects, and iGEM teams.
  • Instructions: a manual with easy to understand vocabulary and step by step procedures and an online experiment simulation to practice with, teach you fundamentals, and guide you along the way. Available online. See the Resources tab for links!

The kit must be refrigerated upon arrival for longer shelf life. A small bag stapled to the outside of the kit and labeled "FREEZE" must be kept frozen until use. 

Necessary equipment: DNA Playground (home or large) or BioExplorer or 37 °C incubator + ice bucket + crushed ice + thermometer + hot water bath. 

Cleaning and safety supplies are not included. These supplies are latex or nitrile gloves, a chlorinated cleaner, or a solution of chlorinated bleach in a spray bottle. For more information about safety, set up and clean up, have a look at the instruction manual(s) for your kit or mini lab. 

  • Try the Engineer-it kit Virtual Bioengineer Simulator. - This is like the first part of the Induce-it kit experiment
  • Browse the Induce-it kit instructions
  • Get the Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero book - Chapter 2 is about setting up your laboratory equipment, and space. Chapter 7 is all about genetic engineering, and learning what genes are, how to control genes manually, and turning on and off genetic switches with the Induce-it kit.
  • Are you a teacher? We have lesson guides for setting up your laboratory space & biotechnology/life science safety, and for growing & discovering and engineering E. Coli cells using the Engineer-it kit in class!

Experiment kit(s) ship in 1-10 working days. If you require yours for a specific date or event, please contact us before or with your order # so that we can make it happen for you! ☺︎
