Looking for an alternative to glucose strips when you teach about lactose and lactase?

Find out how you can directly track lactose cleavage and metabolism using Go Direct® CO2 sensors. Join Vernier biology expert John Melville, PhD, as he covers a standards-aligned enzymology lesson with an updated real-world application. This phenomenon-driven investigation will allow students to explore lactase enzyme function firsthand by observing lactose breakdown and sugar metabolism.

What You'll Learn

Educators will

Learn how students can measure and track the CO2 production of yeast as it metabolizes lactose following exposure to lactase using Vernier Graphical Analysis® Pro.

Get tips for highlighting real-world connections to nutrients and conditions like lactose intolerance.
