Read the teststrip 1 minute after removing it from the well.5.Record the amount of glucose present inData Table 2in the “Cold” column under“Glucose Concentration” for 5 minutes.6.Repeat step 17 through 20 for the remaining two wells at 5 minutes.7.Take additional glucose readings for each of the wells at 10 minutes, 15 minutes, and 20minutes, recording the glucose concentration for each time and well inData Table 2.Cleanup:Discard the used glucose strips in the trash when complete.Put the lid back on to the glucose solution chemical bottle and return it to the kit forfuture use.The remaining 20% glucose in the chemical bottle will be used inadditional experiments in your lab kit.Pour all remaining solutions down the drain with ample amounts of water.Dispose of all used pipets in the trash.Use the dish soap and brush to wash all remaining well plates, plastic cups, andglassware.Return all items to the kit for future use.Exercise 2 - Questions1.
