IDENTIFY PATIENT ZERO OF THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE

February 15, 2018

Whitney M. Young Magnet High School

Time: 5:00pm - 7:30pm 

Facilitator: Mary ClarkWhitney M. Young Magnet High School

Explore the spread of a zombie virus through your classroom with this hands-on lab! We'll use the power of an ELISA assay to see who got "zombified," and to identify the first zombie in the workshop. The specific nature of antibodies in the ELISA assay enables the testing of almost any biological molecule that elicits an immune response, so you can use this same lab to study disease transmission of Ebola, HIV, H1N1, etc. 

This workshop is perfect for teachers of General Biology, AP Biology, Health Sciences, Forensics, or Biotechnology students. 

We'll have pizza and participants will be able to access all materials needed for the lab FOR FREE through our Baxter Box Equipment Loaner Program.

This workshop is presented in conjunction with Bio-Rad.
