Qubit Teaching Labs:
User-Friendly; Powerful; Flexible


“The Qubit staff has been unbelievably helpful in teaching me how to use this equipment. The students enjoyed seeing – in real time – the effect of exercise on the metabolic rate of locusts. We developed a number of very interesting biological questions that they were able to answer using the Qubit equipment. The system has enough flexibility to allow students to design their own experiments, which enhances their understanding dramatically.The software is powerful and extremely user-friendly. I am already thinking of new ways to exploit the system for experiments next year.”

Dr. Barb Vanderbeld, Biology Department, Queen’s University, Ontario, Canada

“I highly recommend the photosynthesis package for any faculty member who wants to make a teaching laboratory more research-based and inquiry driven.”

Dr. Jim Hoerter, Ferris State University, Big Rapids, Michigan, USA
