This is an amazing intro to science most would feel out of reach. The quality of materials is better than I had expected. Highly recommended
CRISPR in the 21st century

The kit contains everything one needs to CRISPR some e. coli. If adequate pre-lab is done, it is quite understandable to most AP Bio students. Although it looks like a bacterial transformation that they have all done previously, they can understand what the Cas9 and the guide RNA is doing. I do have one recommendation - virtually all the kits I buy are for 8 stations/groups - this one is for 7. Drop some of the easily obtained or nice but unnessary things like gloves, 50 ml measuring device, and the microfuge tube rack, and give me enough of the nucleic acids, media, and bacteria to serve 8 stations.

The kit includes everything you need, with an easy to follow protocol for learning CRISPr. The price speaks for itself. 10/10

Directions are a bit vague - yet I still succeed with zero
Highly recommend, very cool this is offered to the public.
Gift for my GF

This is a gift for my GF, she study for become a biotechnologist and she is very happy when recive this kit.
Tnx for all ODIN
Sorry for my English but I come from Italy:)
A fantastic product with the UK shipping

The Odin CRISPR/Cas9 bacterial kit is a creative and effective way for everyone who wants to learn biomedical engineering or biohacking. It has everything you need to perform a simple experiment and learn how to use basic laboratory equipment. Also, instructions are written in a very clear and engaging way and it has been shipped to the UK with no issues! Thanks the Odin!
Just what the doctor ordered

Great introduction to Cas9 DNA editing.
Posted by Prof. T on 20th Jun 2020
Just finished growing my own DNA edited bacteria in my home office. I come from a microelectronics background so working with precision tools and small amounts of material were natural. Succeeding the first time working with engineering DNA was a true rush. This was a lot of science fun and I can't wait to try another kit from Odin.

The kit was easy to use and a great way to get experience with genetic engineering. There were just a few times where the directions could have a bit more detail, however, they were still sufficient and generally very clear.
Contains absolutely everything

The kit is very complete, which is useful for those with no other lab equipment or resources. It is good to see that a perishables replacement kit is now available. I would also like to have the protocols available electronically as a PDF.

If you are looking to use this kit to learn molecular biology and genetic engineering we instead recommend that you purchase our Learn Bioengineering Class which includes this kit as part of it. You can select payment plan on check out for the class to split the cost into 4 monthly payments of $80 each.
We Fulfill and Ship in 2-3 days in the US. Overnight is not required and neither are ice packs.
Due to the overwhelming number of emails we will not respond to emails asking when your item will be shipped. Understand we are doing our best to get it to you.
Comes with an example experiment that teaches you many molecular biology and gene engineering techniques.
Want to really know what this whole CRISPR thing is about? Why it could revolutionize genetic engineering? This kit includes everything you need to make precision genome edits in bacteria at home including Cas9, gRNA and Template DNA template for an example experiment.
Includes example experiment to make a genome mutation(K43T) to the rpsL gene changing the 43rd amino acid, a Lysine(K) to a Threonine(T) thereby allowing the bacteria to survive on Strep media which would normal prevent its growth.
Kit contains enough materials for around 5 experiments or more
- LB Agar
- LB Strep/Kan/Arabinose Agar
- Glass bottle for pouring plates
- Non-pathogenic E. coli DH5a bacteria
- Inoculation Loops/Plate Spreader
- 10-100uL variable volume adjustable pipette(1uL increments)
- Box of 96 Pipette Tips
- 14 Petri Plates
- Microcentrifuge tube rack
- Nitrile Gloves
