Learn the role of the kidney in blood filtration and waste removal along with the many functional tasks performed by nephrons, as well as nephron structure, with this kidney filtration simulation lab. Students get to create an artificial kidney model to filter simulated blood. This allows them to visually detect the difference between filtered and unfiltered blood as they do the experiment. They will also chemically test the resulting filtrate to detect any possible waste material that may have been removed by the kidney. This Kidney and Blood Filtration Kit contains enough materials for 15 groups. A teacher's manual and reproducible student study guide are included.
Safety gear, specifically gloves, goggles, and apron, are recommended. You provide distilled water.
WARNING: This product can expose you to Benzidine -based dyes, which is known to the State of California to cause cancer.
