  • This kit introduces students to amino acids and the process fo chromatography
  • Students will run a chromatography test on three known amino acids, and one unknown mixture of the three, in an attempt to identify the mixture components
  • In addition, students will learn the structure and function of amino acids in the human body
  • This kit contains enough material for 5 groups of students
  • Teacher's manual and student study guide copymasters are included

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.
