I have been doing biotechnology labs for 24 years in my classroom and I am very impressed with the potential I see with the MiniOne. These electrophoresis units will free up class time by allowing us to pour the gels hot, run them rapidly and eliminate the staining and destaining process. As such, students will have the time to make their own gels and we will have time within our class period to begin analyzing results. I also believe the students will have a better understanding of the process because they will be able to watch the DNA separate in real time. As a teacher, I am also thrilled that the entire process is now “green”!
