CEBIB Labs

The Center for Biotechnology and Bioinformatics (CEBIB) in collaboration with Chemoquip Limited(Kenya) and HiMedia Laboratories(India) organized a 1-day hands-on workshop on the use of HiPer® DNA Extraction Teaching Kits (Column based) and HiPer® PCR Teaching Kit.

 

 

 

The event which was held on February 11, 2019, at CEBIB attracted 30 participants, both faculty staff and postgraduate students. Each of the participants was engaged in the practical use of the kits in the extraction of genomic DNA (gDNA) from a bacterial culture, amplification of the extracted gDNA using gradient PCR, resolution of the extracted DNA/PCR products using agarose gel electrophoresis and visualization of the gDNA fragments in a gel doc.
