SED Laboratory

Our laboratory uses the same quality equipment used in Universities across the country, to provide the best experiences in molecular biology, biotechnology and more.

We use our lab to answer real world questions like "Are organic vegetables really better for you? What does the science say?" We also have fun, like discovering if you can make plants glow with the DNA of a firefly.
