Education Biochemistry

We offer a variety of interesting and fun science and biotech workshops for students at secondary levels.

Biochemistry

Quantitation of Proteins by Spectrophotometry (Course Code: BML-SB-01)

(For Secondary 4-6)

Duration:  ~90 min

Class Size: Limited to 32 students

Students can learn about the basic concept of spectrophotometry, and different biochemical methods to determine the protein amount by a spectrophotometer or a microplate reader. They are given an unknown milk sample and they have to determine the protein amount of the unknown sample by construction of a protein standard curve.
(Students should have the basic understanding on graph plotting).

 

 

 
Gel Filtration Chromatography (Course Code: BML-SB-02)

(For Secondary 4-6)

Duration: ~60 – 90 min

Class Size: Limited to 32 students

Students can learn about the basic concept of gel filtration chromatography, and its application. They can learn how to pack a gel filtration column (optional), and purify the samples from a colorful mixture.

Additional charge (HK$2,000) will be posted for this experiment (Course Code: BML-SB-02)

 

 

 
 Blood Typing (Course Code: BML-SB-03)

(For Secondary 4-6)

Duration: ~60 – 75 min

Class Size: Limited to 32 students

Students can learn about the composition of blood and functions of various blood cell types, ABO blood groups, and blood transfusion. They can identify the blood group of unknown blood sample by simulated blood agglutination method to understand the importance of blood test before transfusion.
