Engaging Content that Builds Future-Ready Students

Biotechnology applies biology and technology to improve lives. Through groundbreaking techniques like genetic engineering, cloning, and bioinformatics, it has driven innovation in many industries, including medicine, agriculture, and environmental conservation. In your classroom, biotechnology can foster a hands-on, muti-disciplinary approach to teaching that makes learning engaging and relevant. 

Biotechnology education enhances technical and soft skills to improve employability. It cultivates laboratory, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills to make students more confident, resilient, and collaborative. As they learn how science can address global challenges like disease, food security, and environmental sustainability, your students become better prepared for the future and a wide range of career opportunities.

"I cannot say enough good things about Bio-Rad! From their easy, online quote request system to the products and customer support, Bio-Rad has set themselves apart. The Biotechnology textbook is first rate... labs are explained in clear detail, and the questions that are asked help students think critically about the results they obtained. After a full year course of biotechnology, my students are expertly prepared to work in an undergraduate research lab."

Educator Discounts on Bio-Rad Lab Equipment & Supplies

Bio-Rad offers its research equipment and supplies at a discount to educators. Teach students on the same instruments used in research and biomanufacturing laboratories around the world.

Abbey Brockhouse
Skutt Catholic High School Omaha, NE

"The Bio-Rad biotechnology course uses the same quality lab equipment and reagents used in research labs. This opens a huge number of opportunities for authentic hands-on learning that cannot be matched by any other means. Former students share that they are the only ones in their college labs who know how to use lab equipment. They are then asked to be teaching assistants and also go on to do summer research projects and publish papers early on in college."
