Bio-Rad Wins 2020 Science Educators’ Best of Show Awards from the National Science Teaching Association for Educational Kits

HERCULES, Calif. – Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: BIO and BIOb) today announced that two of the company’s Bio-Rad Explorer Program science education products were presented with 2020 Science Educators’ Best of Show awards from the National Science Teaching Association (NSTA). Bio-Rad’s Out of the Blue CRISPR and Genotyping Extension kits were awarded “Best New Technology Innovation for Science” and the Science of Opioid Dependence Kit won in the category of “Best Tried & True Technology Teaching and Learning: Science & Social Impact.” Bio-Rad was also named a finalist for Outstanding Vendor.

The winners were selected by science educators who voted as NSTA members as well as a separate panel of judges. “The Bio-Rad Explorer Out of the Blue CRISPR and Genotyping Extension kits are complete curricula that begin with an amazing website [bio-rad.com/teachcrispr] that provides teacher resources,” remarked one of the judges. “Detailed instructions create a successful experiment for the students and the entire unit is well thought out, full of resources, and is at the cutting edge of genetic research and development.”

The Out of the Blue CRISPR and Genotyping Extension kits were launched in March. The kits provide hands-on gene editing hands-on activities and address the benefits and ethical issues associated with the procedure. CRISPR technology is a process that allows for the insertion, modification, and deletion of genes. For more information on the Out of the Blue CRISPR kits please visit bio-rad.com/outoftheblue.

The Science of Opioid Dependence Kit puts students in the roles of doctor and researcher as the students explore potential genetic links to opioid dependence. Students outline a human genetic research study as well as experiments to determine if a mutation in a patient’s human dopamine receptor gene may influence opioid dependence. They also consider environmental factors that contribute to dependence as a phenotype. For more information on the Science of Opioid Dependence kit please visit bio-rad.com/opioid.
