ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:


SARS-CoV-2 is a novel coronavirus that has caused a worldwide outbreak of respiratory disease beginning in 2019. In this simulated medical test, we will use electrophoresis to detect the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in samples from patients with symptoms of COVID-19.

• Hands-on simulation of molecular testing for COVID-19
• Students learn about the characteristics of coronaviruses
• Electrophoresis is used to analyze simulated RT-PCR samples

Edvotek® YouTube Live Stream - Nucleic Acid Testing for COVID-19: Edvotek Ready-to-Load Electrophoresis

You may have heard a lot about RT-PCR testing for COVID-19 in the news. But how does the test work, and what do the results mean? In this Live Stream, we discuss this technique and demonstrate EDVO-Kit #123 Nucleic Acid Testing for COVID-19 electrophoresis experiment. We'll study the molecular biology behind this technique, including an in-depth look at the polymerase chain reaction. Finally, we'll discuss why COVID-19 testing is important for public health!
