Smell-It Kit™

Genetically engineer organisms to make overripe banana smell through enzyme reactions!

The Smell-it Kit lets you practice how to grow and engineering bacteria with a DNA program to express an enzyme derived from yeast that will catalyze a chemical reaction resulting in the smell of over-ripe bananas!

All-in-one kit with no prior experience necessary. A perfect step in exploring the world of biotechnology. Compatible with Ch. 6 of  Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero book.

A DNA Playground is recommended. Prior completion of Canvas, Engineer-it, and Extract-it Kits is recommended. 

The group version comes in a pack of four kits.

Make selective & non-selective agar, pour petri dishes, streak bacteria, make bacteria chemically competent, engineer bacteria using DNA plasmid (bacterial transformation), incubate, culture bacteria, create positive and negative controls, add substrate, incubate, smell/analyze results.


Ships in 1-10 working days. If you require yours for a specific date or event, please contact us prior to, or with your order # so that we can make it happen for you! ☺︎ 

The kit(s) must be refrigerated upon arrival for longer shelf life.
