“Farmer Brown’s Wife Found Dead in Barnyard!” Identification through Immunoassay (Adapted from the Shoestring Biotechnology Project of NABT - http://www.okccc.edu/BBDiscovery/documents/Modules/Immunoassay.htm) As a C rime S cene I nvestigator, you must know the following: Immunoassay uses serum-antiserum tests. (antigen-antibody) Each antiserum is specific for each serum (like human blood). Each serum has unique electric charge and 3-D shape. When the antiserum hits the right serum, a visible band (or line) forms. You will have these materials to use: 2% agar in a Petri dish 1 soda straw droppers 1 set of sera and antiserum 1 permanent marker bottles of undiluted yellow and blue food coloring When you are ready at your laboratory station, and have all the above equipment you can solve this mystery and either help put Farmer Brown away OR set him free to kick more dogs and cats and kill more chickens!
