Lab Equipment Loan Program

Attention teachers!
PBSC loans lab equipment for use in your classroom!

Are budget cuts restricting your ability to teach the latest science labs and concepts? Do you wish you had the equipment and supplies to run cool experiments like agarose gel electrophoresis, DNA isolation, PCR, protein extraction, algae culture, or microscopy?

PBSC has developed a program for Palm Beach County middle and high schools to borrow laboratory equipment for 4-week terms.

Equipment for rent includes:

  • Gel electrophoresis chambers
  • Agarose gel trays & power supply
  • Microscopes & prepared slides
  • UV-Vis Spectrophotometers
  • Micropipets and tips
  • UV & white light boxes
  • pH meters
  • Thermal cycler (PCR machine)
  • Algae bioreactor

In exchange for the equipment loan and training, teachers and their students participating in the program will be expected to give a presentation / make a video or other documentation of what they did with the equipment, and how they incorporated it into curriculum and classroom activities.
