About the Pipette-it Kit™
Welcome to the world of DNA technology. Your first task: learn to pipette like a professional.
An important prerequisite to manipulating DNA is to demonstrate accurate and consistent pipetting. Biotechnology research and development requires that small volumes of liquid, sometimes less than 1 millionth of a liter, be accurately pipetted. This exercise is a robust way to practice and demonstrate your pipetting skills while also learning about data management (collecting results, processing data, and showing data in a chart)
What will you learn?
What else is needed?
Cleaning and safety supplies are not included in the kit. Necessary safety and cleaning supplies are latex or nitrile gloves, and a chlorinated bleach cleaner or a 10% solution of chlorinated bleach in a spray bottle (you can make this by adding 9 parts water to 1 part bleach in a spray bottle). You can add a Mini Safety Set to your kit which includes gloves and a reusable plastic apron to protect your clothes.
For more information about safety, set up and clean up, you can have a look at the instruction manual for the experiment linked in the Ressources section below, and at the "Practicing safe science" page.
