ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:


Cancer cells differ from normal cells by the combinations of proteins that are present on their surfaces. Antibodies against these proteins will specifically bind to cancer cells and not to normal cells. This allows early detection of cancer and potentially a way of delivering cancer therapies. In this simulation experiment, the reaction of cancer cell markers and their corresponding antigens are demonstrated.

• Learn and understand the concepts of blood-based screening for cancer
• Explore antigen-antibody interactions through blood agglutination
• Perform hemagglutination assays using simulated blood samples, controls, and antibody serums
• Analyze the results to screen 12 patients for either HPV or PSA
