This experiments allows to simulate the method of DNA fingerprinting and uses a DNA fingerprint to identify the offender in a hypothetical crime. After separation of a given DNA by using gel electrophoresis and staining the DNA samples the students can compare the pattern of fragments on the gel with other DNA samples and match the DNA to the offender.


  • Complete equipment set which also contains all required consumables
  • Consumables can be purchased as a replacement kit
  • Ready to use: DNA fragment samples are already predigested
  • Easy to use: detailed experiment guide
  • DNA samples can can be stored for a longer period at room temperature because they are lyophilized


  • Cast the agarose gel
  • Prepare samples for electrophoresis
  • Perform electrophoresis
  • Stain the samples and analyse the banding pattern
