Case 6: Exercise Your Options
Developed in partnership with Bio 101
This scenario focuses on a start-up company seeking qualified research assistants/associates for assay development. The two-part case study begins with the job application process. Students prepare their resumes and practice interview skills. In the lab activity, students order the complete set of reagents needed to perform an ELISA from a web-based biotech distributor. After ordering the reagents, students conduct the ELISA. These materials include the Case Study, Laboratory Procedure, Appendix, Student Worksheet, Purchase Requisition Form, and a Catalog Exercise. A facilitator guide is also available here after log-in.
