I used to view our gel electrophoresis lab as a long term journey. Many students got lost along the way because the lab took so many steps, different class periods were required and results were unreliable. I just finished our first attempt using the MiniOne system. The results were fantastic and conclusive. Students better understand the process and the results because they were in charge of all of the setup, lab and results. Students of all ability levels were engaged and understood. I am so excited about the setup and results with the MiniOne: the quick student-completed setup, the very few opportunities for error, the quickness of the run, the lack of post-run staining/destaining, the reliable results. I LOVE this system.
