The EduPrimer™ DNA Profiling Kit is specifically designed to introduce students to the principles and applications of PCR, focusing on its real-life use of DNA profiling in forensics and disease research. The core kit is designed with 30 reactions total, meant for 24 student reactions and 6 control reactions.

  • Highly variable results between students The microsattelite region targeted with this kit makes it an excellent example of genetic elements that can be used for identification.

  • Extremely simple and fast protocol for easy integration into classrooms such as Introductory or General Biology. Anyone can do it.

  • Quick protocol involving isolation of students' DNA, PCR and electrophoresis, all completed within a 2.5 - 3 hour time frame.
