Key preparation:

Day-by-day

Day 1

Materials required:

Day of Lab (R/F):

After Lab:

How it went: Pre-lab ran longer than it should have, leaving students with just over two hours to complete their designs -- not enough time for most.

Day 2

Materials required:

  • Bird samples! At 100 μL each in a 2 mL tube
  • Aliquots of components from QiaAMP stool kit (see GoogleDoc)
  • InhibiTEX tablets should be singly available -- pre-cut around them; otherwise it is too easy to push out two instead of one

Day of Lab (R/F):

  • Check ASL and AL for precipitates; pre-heat at about 40-50 °C in the water bath at the TA bench
  • Set up the heat block at the front bench. Fill tube slots with water and set at 70 °C
  • Either set up second heat block at 56 °C or turn on the small oven (may be easiest)


After Lab:
