Details

This experiment will help students understand the importance of proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids in living organisms. They will learn to identify a positive test result for proteins using biuret reagent and examine the reaction between Benedict’s reagent and a simple sugar. Using iodine/potassium iodide they will test for the presence of starch and test for the presence of lipids using a fat-soluble dye.

Kit Includes:

1 x 25ml Iodine/potassium iodide solution
1 x 25ml Biuret reagent
1 x 25ml Benedict’s solution
1 x 25ml 1.0% Sudan III stain
