Kidneys and Blood Filtration Kit
Learn the role of the kidney in blood filtration and waste removal along with the many functional tasks performed by nephrons, as well as nephron structure with this Kidneys and Blood Filtration Kit. Students will create an artificial kidney model to filter simulated blood. This will allow them to visually observe the difference between filtered and unfiltered simulated blood. They will also chemically test the resulting filtrate to detect any possible waste material that may have been removed by the kidney. This Kidneys and Blood Filtration Kit contains enough materials for 15 groups. A teacher's manual and reproducible student study guide are included. Ages 12 & up.
You supply some common lab equipment and safety gear, like goggles and gloves. We recommend our Chemistry Equipment Kit for a one-box kit with the most commonly used lab items.
