RGB Kit™ - Activate cells with light

Control gene expression with light. (Manually control genes!)

This advanced biotechnology education kit is part of the Induction Series™. The RGB kit allows you to control color pigments that the cell has been engineered to produce - using LIGHT! The most advanced light induction system in the world, this system allows you to use three different colors of light to turn one, two or all three unique color-producing genes - Genetic engineering truly is amazing! 

This kit is also a great addition to your BioArt toolkit! If you have already successfully completed the original Engineer-it Kit color pigment series and the Smell-it Kit, Induce-it Kit, and Heat-it Kit - then you're ready to move on to the RGB Kit

This is an all-in-one STEM project kit that is 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. 

This kit is currently in BETA. 

 

  1. Make selective agar,
  2. pour Petri dishes,
  3. streak bacteria,
  4. paint with bacteria to create ‘living art’,
  5. incubate under specific light condition,
  6. see results under UV light.

During this hands-on biotechnology experiment, you will learn how to control genes with light and how to use that to make with biology.

Contents: 

  • (1) RGB Kit in Individual or Group size: Sterile water, 6cm Petri dish, LB agar, selection marker, ‘RGB’ bacteria stab, bacteria paintbrush, 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 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. 

Necessary equipment: It is strongly recommended you have a black light (fluorescent or incandescent bulb) to visualize the results. UV LED flashlights do not work great.

You will also need a DNA Playground Large for best results or DNA Playground home /37 °C incubator and the RGB kit LED add-on (add it with the drop-down)

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 Heat-it kit experiment
  • Browse the RGB 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 RGB 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! ☺︎
