DNA Gel Electrophoresis apparatus for school use, 1993

Developed by the National Centre for Biotechnology Education (NCBE), this was one of the first kits developed for use in schools to study the science behind DNA. The kit is known as DNA Gel Electrophoresis kit. Electrophoresis is a technique used in chemistry and physics where an electric current is passed through a sample in a gel to separate out different molecules. Based at the University of Reading, the NCBE develops tools to promote biotechnology education.
