STEM Learning: STEM equipment

A range of great STEM equipment to assist both teachers and students in their quest for learning about molecular biology. These include thermal cyclers controllable from a mobile phone, Gel electrophoresis unit that uses blue light  to visualise DNA bands whilst fitting in the palm of your hand.  Ther eis also mini centrifuge that not only looks great but is a very tough and versatile piece of essential equipment. Check out the P51 viewer, a cardboard  box that allows you to visualise DNA with ease. + many more

Bandit™ STEM Electrophoresis Kit

Bandit™ is an integrative kit bridging science and engineering practices

Bandit™ is a safe and low-cost STEM activity kit students can use to build and run a working gel electrophoresis system. With Bandit™ electrophoresis, students build it to understand it: by building the system, students will connect how the concepts of circuits, charge, and electricity that they learn about in physical science can be used as fundamental tools in the biology lab. Integrate crosscutting concepts into your curriculum while making clear connections between core ideas from different disciplines.


Bandit™ electrophoresis features:

  • Integrative: Equally well suited for physical science and life science classrooms
  • Safe: Runs on safe USB power
  • Durable: Sturdy components stand up to repeated use
  • Cost-effective: Our most affordable option for bringing this essential lab technique to your students
  • Simple: No need for additional stains or visualizers – with our dye electrophoresis Learning Labs™, students can see their results as the gel runs
  • Sustainable: No batteries required, and electrodes are reusable

Bandit™ is the perfect partner for dye electrophoresis Learning Labs™. Bandit™ dye labs are a low-cost jumping-off point to explore topics like inheritance, genetic identification, and more!
