Biosafety at home
Take this quiz before starting your genetic engineering experiments to make sure you know your safety procedures! 🦠Good luck!
These questions are based on the available Lesson Guide for Chapter 2 of Zero to Genetic Engineering Hero book. The Lesson Guides were developed by Mindfuel.ca in collaboration with Amino Labs.
Remember that you can also download and print a safety checklist for your lab space at amino.bio/checklist
Read the following excerpt and answer the questions below
What temperature should you aim for your laboratory space be to ensure successful genetic engineering experiments, in an ideal situation?
Between 30 ̊C and 37 ̊C
Between 17 ̊C and 25 ̊C
Why should you have a locked room, cabinet, or incubator for your laboratory space?
To keep younger siblings, children and pets out and away from experiments
To protect your scientific work & inventions
To keep your space sterile
To keep rodents and insects out and away from experiments
Why is good air quality important for genetic engineering experiments?
Because many organisms besides what you want to grow love the nutrient rich agar used experiments
Because the organisms you are going to grow need good air quality to survive
Because nutrient rich agar smells strongly
Because you will be using toxic materials that require a well ventilated space
What might be an indicator that you need an air purifier?
Select all that apply
Unknown growth in your petri dish experiment
Visible dust or particles in the air
The environment is a little damp
The space you are working in is close to a kitchen or bathroom
