A significant proportion of the cornstarch derived from the wet milled process used for food goes into the fermentation of beer. To be useful to the breweries, it first has to be converted into dextrose or d-glucose. This is an example of down-stream processing; a raw material is isolated and used as a starting material in another process.

This laboratory uses an Enzyme Linked Immuno-assay to detect the presence of TMV antigens in tobacco products.

View Resource Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry Experiment [doc]

Gas Chromotography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) is an analytical instrument used in many laboratory testing situations. Here is a laboratory exercise that explains and uses this methodology to analyse DMSO. Plenty of images and screenshots accompany this exercise, as well as group discussion questions and questions for individual exploration of mass spectrometry online.

View Resource Protein Purification Manual

This laboratory manual outlines the procedures for the purification of an enzyme, -galactosidase, from a strain of E. coli cells. Extracting and purifying this protein from E. coli will be a multi-step process, starting from cell paste of E. Coli, progressing through several separation methods, and ending with analysis and verification of the purified protein by polyacrylamide gel ...
