Are You Ready for In-Person Instruction?

If you’re like many teachers across the US, the 2020-2021 school year was mostly virtual or operated on a hybrid schedule. Its been a long strange trip, and although the pandemic is not yet behind us, many schools are entering the 2021-2022 year with 100% in-person instruction and inching towards normalcy.

Due to the pandemic, students may have missed out on skills-based labs, or you may be a little rusty yourself! Do you need a refresher on how to pour an agarose gel ? Is your pipette calibrated correctly ? Do you know the differences between blue stains & fluorescent stains and the equipment required ?

Knowing the BASICS leads to experimental SUCCESS for both you and your students! Over the years, our BLOG has covered it all and we’re adding short Biotech Tips videos to our YouTube channel weekly. 

Let us help you discover the best of biotechnology and get back into the swing of things!
