Case 4: An Ultra Bad Hair Day
Developed in Partnership with Stratagene
In this case study, students grapple with issues relating to quality control. In this scenario, a product coordinator at a fictitious company (Ecco Hair Design) discovers that there is a problem with a shampoo after receiving a letter of complaint from a well-known model. The conceptual focus of this case/lab is on protein purification, and the lab requires students to follow Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). Students may also choose to design a revised SOP as a completion to the lab. For instructional materials, follow the links below. These include the case study, the SOP, Appendix, and the Laboratory Procedure. A facilitator guide is also available here after log-in.
