MINI CATALOGUE OF MICROBIOLOGY AND IMMUNOLOGY SUPPLIES

The mini-catalogue of Microbiology and Immunology supplies is designed to make available in one place all the supplies needed to teach a comprehensive lab based course in microbiology and immunology. This catalogue saves you from searching for the needed supplies in a multitude of voluminous catalogues. Our mini-catalogue lists only the essentials and provides you in small enough quantities sufficient for your current classes. This reduces waste and cuts cost.

We also supply a complete hands on laboratory manual covering all the basic techniques of microbiology and immunology.

Using our mini-catalogue, you can teach the following techniques to your students:

Getting acquainted with higher and lower protista via higher and lower protista kits
Microscopy: Light, dark field, phase, fluorescent and electron microscopy
Isolation of microorganisms
Pure culture techniques
Procedures for identifying and classifying microorganisms
Staining reactions as aid to identifying microorganisms
Staining reactions as aids to study microbial structure
Biochemical reactions as aids to identifying microorganisms
Rapid and multitest biochemical procedures such as Enterotube and API systems for identifying microorganisms
Immunological and serological procedures in diagnosis and biological research
Agglutination Reaction
Precipitation Reaction
Tests for determining purity of biological preparations
Ouchterlony double diffusion reaction
Immunoelectrophoresis reaction
Neutralization reactions for studying viruses and toxins
Blood typing, ABO and Rh systems
Tissue compatibility tests
Serodiagnosis of microbial diseases
Concept of rising titer in serodiagnosis of microbial diseases
Basic procedures used in Clinical Microbiology
Antibiotic sensitivity testing
Basic procedures used in Industrial Microbiology
Basic Procedures used in Environmental Microbiology
Basic microbiological procedures for water and sewage testing
Basic microbiological procedures used in food industries
Basic microbiological procedures used in pharmaceutical industries
Basic microbiological procedures used in cosmetic industries
Working with molds and fungi
Working with viruses
Setting up Tissue cultures
Working with bacterial viruses - bacteriophages
Basic procedure for studying microbial genetics - transformation, truansduction and conjugation
Fundamentals of gentetic engineering
DNA isolation
Polymerase chain reaction


As you can see, this min-catalogue allows you to teach an exhaustive hands-on laboratory based course in microbiology. Immnology and microbial gentics. The accompanying manual of Basic and Applied Microbiology, being compact and free of superfluous material, enables you and your students to focus on learning and teaching much more than is generally possible in conventional quarter or semester long courses. Yet, this manual which is broken down into l0 units allows yo to accomplish more in the span of a quarter or a semester. The manual is easily paced to adapt to a quarter or a semester format.

There is an another rather hidden dvantage of this manual and the mini-catalogue not readily apparent which is that:

OUR MINDS FOCUS AND LEARN BETTER WHEN WE ARE GIVEN A BIRD'S EYE VIEW OF A SUBJECT OR A CONCEPT AS OPPOSED TO A LONG DRAWN-OUT EXPLANATION. THAT IS ALSO THE PROCESS WHEREBY DISCOVERIES ARE MADE LEADING TO THAT AH, AH FEELING.

Our manual and the mini-catalogue is capable of generating that ah, ah feeling in your students thus making this concentrated learning experience the beginning of a life long learning, exploration and investigation, the very stuff that goes into the making of a scientist or a knoledgeable human.
