SKU: 209
$119.00

ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:


In this simulation experiment, students will use a viral plaque assay to determine the viral load of two patients undergoing antiviral treatment. They will then share classroom data to evaluate the treatment's effect.

• Explore viruses and the biotechnologies used to prevent, treat, and monitor them
• Perform plaque assays on a simulated patient sample to determine viral load
• Evaluate the success of an antiviral treatment by sharing and graphing class results
• Our COLORTOP™ Agar and Bacteriophage T4 ViroBeads™ are safe, easy to use, and designed for the classroom
