An infectious outbreak requires prompt & accurate identification of the biological agent. Often, early clinical symptoms are first identified in exposed individuals & then infectious agents are identified by lab tests. In this kit, students will transmit a simulated infectious agent (chemical dye) between classmates. The simulated infectious agent is only visible under long UV light. The pattern of transmission and primary source will be documented.
Kit includes: instructions, reagents for simulating an infectious agent (fluorescent dye indicator and negative sample), test tubes & caps, transfer pipets, one long UV mini-light, cotton swabs, petroleum jelly, gloves.
