Bio-Rad’s pGLO Bacterial Transformation and GFP Kits offer engaging and unforgettable lab activities in which students engineer bacteria to express the Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) and glow green under UV light. These kits enable hands-on learning about the central dogma, gene expression and regulation, genetic engineering, protein separation, and the biomanufacturing process.
pGLO Bacterial Transformation Kits
Teach bacterial transformation and about factors that regulate gene expression. Made with industry-grade reagents, these robust and reliable lab kits are available in three formats to support your teaching needs.
Teach the basics of genetic engineering and the roles that external and internal factors play in gene regulation.
Teach core genetics concepts with a three-dimensional approach to the favorite pGLO bacterial transformation activity.
Students design their own inquiry investigations to examine the roles that external and internal factors play in bacterial transformation and gene regulation.
pGLO GFP Extension Kits
Take your pGLO transformation lab to the next level and explore the structure and function of the expressed GFP. The bacterial proteome contains thousands of proteins, but only the cloned green fluorescent protein (GFP) glows!
Use SDS-PAGE to view the expression of proteins in your pGLO bacteria.
Use chromatography to purify glowing GFP from your pGLO bacteria.
Use the expression and purification of GFP to simulate the drug discovery process in your classroom.
