    What People Are Saying

    Great Experiment w/one problem
  • Karen

  • My class loved performing this experiment, however the biggest problem with it is this: You need an incubator to keep the solutions in for 1 hour at a particular temperature. This was not clear to me when I purchased the product. The only thing the website says is that you need a hot plate. I tried using a hot plate, but it was difficult to keep the temperature steady. An incubator is what is needed, as described in the experiment's instructions (which you do not see until you receive the product). Home Training Tools should have made this clear on their website as well as offered this companion product for purchase. The way we overcame this was to incubate the test tubes in our armpits (body temperature). While this worked rather well, it was not ideal to have to keep test tubes in ones armpit for an hour. On another note, the lesson that comes with the kit is very, very good.
    You need a 37 Cn incubator or water bath

  • Great product. However you need to make sure you have a 37c incubator or a water bath that you can use to keep the solutions in it for an hour . you also need to purchase test tubes to be able to run the experiment

      Enzymes and the Process of Digestion Kit

      All the food in the world is of no use if the human body can't extract necessary nutrients from it. Students learn about digestion as they expose three nutrients (carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids) to different digestive enzymes. These samples will be compared to nutrients to which no enzymes are added and chemical tests will be used to determine if the enzymes were effective in digesting the compounds. Upon completion, students will not only understand the importance of the digestive system but also the vital role enzymes play in releasing nutrients from food and converting them to a form usable by the body. This Enzymes and the Process of Digestion kit contains enough material for 15 groups of students. A teacher's manual and reproducible student study guide are included.

      Safety gear, specifically gloves, goggles, and apron, are recommended. You provide test tubes, test tube rack, hot plate, beakers, labeling tape, markers, and distilled water.

      Shipping Note: This item contains regulated chemicals and only ships Economy or UPS to a street address in the 50 US states.
