From the west coast to the eastern seaboard – MiniOne has been turning heads at APSI workshops nationwide!

Ah, summer. The season of barbecues, beach days, and enriching your AP Biology course curriculum. Across the United States, our most passionate and diligent teachers gather for Advanced Placement Summer Institutes – workshops designed to help high school educators develop programs that will help prepare our best and brightest minds for the rigor of university education.

Our own Richard and Callen have gone nomadic this summer, traveling from city to city, and state to state, demonstrating to AP biology teachers how they can  easily, affordably, and safely incorporate biotech education into their curriculums. The MiniOne DNA Electrophoresis system and MiniOne  PCR system are educational game-changers, making it possible for lecture, lab, and clean up to fit into one classroom period.

The response has been overwhelmingly positive. Teachers are surprised to see how efficient, accessible, and student-centered our MiniOne systems are compared to the DNA separation and PCR systems of the past. By minimizing risk and speeding up the process (without sacrificing scientific precision), students can take a hands-on approach to learning essential skills and concepts that will be invaluable in their college biology courses.

From the coast of California to the Atlantic seaboard, APSI educators have been excited by MiniOne systems. Less wasted time, less risk, more hands-on time and real world applications. Oh, and it’s all at an affordable price – starting at just $279. Does it get much better than that?
