  • LEARN THE PROCESS FOR CHROMATOGRAPHY || This kit introduces learners to the structure and function of amino acids, as well as the methods used by scientists to separate and identify individual amino acids through chromatography
  • ENGAGING ACTIVITY || Experiment using chromatography on three known amino acids and then use the results to identify the components of an unknown amino acid mixture. Learn how to properly calculate Rf values for amino acids and understand what causes the amino acids to separate as they move up and down the chromatography paper
  • EXCELLENT FOR REMOTE LEARNING || Great for Distance Learning and home schooling - kit includes instruction manual, worksheets and enough materials for 5 groups of students
  • MATERIALS INCLUDED || Kit includes 1 bottle ninhydrin powder, 4 bottles 95% ethanol solution, 2 bottles chromatography solvent, 1 bottle alanine control, 1 bottle glycine control, 1 bottle Leucine control, 1 bottle unknown amino acid mixture, 4 capillary tubes 1 centrifuge tube, and 7 chromatography sheets

Amino acids are the fundamental building blocks of all proteins. Often times scientists may need to identify the amino acid contained in a protein. One such method for separating and identifying individual amino acids is paper chromatography. This kit introduces learners to the structure and function of amino acids, and allows them to experiment using chromatography on three known amino acids and then use the results to identify the components of an unknown amino acid mixture. Learn how to properly calculate Rf values for amino acids and understand what causes the amino acids to separate as they move up and down the chromatography paper!
