Using a safe, simulated disease agent, students model the transmission of a communicable viral disease, identify its origin and calculate its rate of spread through the population. The class forms inferences on the rate a disease spreads today as compared to a similar outbreak a century ago.
Explore the chemistry behind these common household products
What's the chemical difference between soaps and detergents? How are they manufactured? How do they work? Your students will answer these and other questions as they explore commonly used cleansers. They'll investigate how surfactants reduce surface tension and evaluate the efficiency of soaps and detergents in emulsifying fats. The class will also evaluate commercially available soaps and detergents for their effectiveness and efficiency in cleaning.
Features animated tutorials on classifying and identifying prokaryotes; obtaining and releasing energy; growth and reproduction; bacteria in nature; bacteria and disease; uses of bacteria; and controlling bacteria. Also includes comprehensive coverage of additional concepts including virus types and classification; virus structure; viral infection; viruses and disease; vaccines and much more. Virtual labs allow your students to classify bacteria types and experiment in controlling bacteria. Includes a unique assessment function – featuring practice and test modes – and a teacher’s resource section, which allows you to create customized tutorials, tests and presentations.
Set of five microscope slides comes complete with Neo/GUIDE reference booklet featuring detailed background information and structure identification key. Includes: Trichinella (Trichinosis); Plasmodium (Malaria); Pneumocystis (AIDS-Opportunistic Infection); Mycobacterium (Tuberculosis); and entamoeba (Amoebic Dysentary).
Investigate parasites and their effect on human health
Detailed case studies, graphic images and authoritative text make this atlas a must for any study of human disease. Comprehensive program features a collection of nearly four hundred images of parasites and their impact on man. Provides thoroughly detailed information on the life cycles of parasites, the diseases they cause as well as the diagnosis and cure of these illnesses.
A microscopic tour of harmful organisms
Discover how organisms from various kingdoms can be troublesome, noxious and destructive! Your students will investigate the special predatory relationship termed "parasitic" and learn how these specialized organisms survive by living off their prey. Features a comprehensive library of nearly fifty microscopic images which can be magnified, manipulated and measured - just like with a traditional microscope. Each image is accompanied by comprehensive reference text. Images and text can be printed for use in presentations, reports, tests and handouts.
Infection The Game!
This game is perfect for students to play and interact as they learn about hygiene and infection control. The game helps them visualize how to avoid infection!
What effects do alcohol, soap and bleach have on the growth of microorganisms? Provide your class with a firsthand look at how various disinfectants affect the growth of bacteria. Then use this knowledge to examine the most efficient ways to prevent the spread of these organisms and the relationship between handwashing techniques and bactericidal effectiveness.
Features a comprehensive set of interactive microscope slide images of viruses and bacteria which can be magnified, manipulated, and measured - just like with a traditional microscope! These stunning photos are accompanied by callouts and definitions, supporting reference text as well as video clips of key microorganisms. This unique program gives users the flexibility to choose from either tutorial, assessment, or lecture modes. Images include Viruses, Microhabitats, Microanatomy, Bacteria Forms, Mixtures, Eubacteria, and Cyanobacteria. Includes video loop of Mixed Bacteria.
Hunt for various kinds of microorganisms - including bacteria, fungi and protists - in water, air, soil and even food, employing a ready-to-use growth media. The specially formulated gel, which requires no autoclaving or special equipment, makes it easy for students to design experiments that explore the subvisible world around them, collecting and identifying a wide variety of microbes. The investigation also includes a dichotomous key to molds, bacteria, and protists; a specially formulated dried Microlife Mix that allows you to explore the diversity of pond organisms; and a guide to appropriate viewing techniques.
Provide your class with a comprehensive set of interactive digital microscope slide images which can be magnified, manipulated and measured - just like with a traditional microscope! These stunning photos are accompanied by supporting reference text. The unique program can be operated in either tutorial, assessment, or lecture modes. Features scores of dual-resolution microscope images of live and prepared material including Nomral and Diseased tissues involving Cervical Cancer, ACirrhosis, Breast Cancer, Appendicitis, Pneumonia, Leukemia, Mononucleosis, Anemia, Myocardial Infarction, Atherosclerosis, and Lyme Disease including Vector and Spirochete. Also includes microscopic images of Vectors such as the Flea, Head Louse, Bed Bug and Tick; Parasites to include Tapeworm, and Liver Fluke; and AIDS-opportunistic organisms including Pnemocystis and Cryptosporidium.
Animated tutorials and interactive lab investigations provide the latest on diseases and their treatment. Narrated tutorials include up-to-date coverage of infectious diseases; the germ theory of disease; Koch’s postulates; agents of disease; how diseases spread; fighting infectious diseases; the immune system; immune system disorders; and much more! Virtual labs provide interactive explorations of Koch’s postulates; ELISA testing; and how diseases spread. Also includes a unique assessment function – featuring practice and test modes – and a teacher’s resource section, that allows you to create customized tutorials, tests and presentations.
Explore the immuological principle that antibodies bind to specific antigens. Your class will learn how ELISA - Enzyme Linked Immunoassay - is a fundamental clinical tool used for the detection of the AIDS virus. They will conduct simulated ELISA screening assays on simulated blood sera of ten individuals to determine their HIV status. In the process, they will learn about basic immunology as well as specifics concerning the assay "positive" and "negative" controls as well as what "false positive" and "false negative" results mean.
Give your students a firsthand view of how tar and other pollutants accumulate in the lungs during smoking. Simply place a lit cigarette that you provide in the mouth of the "Smoking Man" and draw smoke into his "lungs" using the syringe pump included. The results will amaze you as you watch his lungs start to darken after only a few short puffs! Includes detailed teacher and student guides that provide extensive background information on the dangers of smoking. Size: 5 1/4"L x 4"W x 9"H.
