ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:


Antigen-Antibody interactions are key to many of our body's immune responses and are the foundation of several biotechnologies including ELISA and Ouchterlony tests. In this experiment, students perform and interpret an Ouchterlony double immunodiffusion to understand antigen-antibody specificity, cross-reactivity, and precipitation. The experiment also introduces students to key steps in forensic investigations and their results will confirm the identity of simulated blood collected from a crime scene.

• Discover and see antigen-antibody interactions
• Perform a double diffusion Ouchterlony test
• Interpret results to identify simulated blood samples
• Learn forensic analysis procedures
• Understand the role of presumptive and confirmatory tests
