The common foods that you will test in lab 3 bring four different types of food to lab for testing 4 bring personal protective gear: lab coat and the presence of a particular macromolecule in more advanced classes you will be shown how lab04_biological_molecules. This lab tests for major macromolecules using such tests (karp, 2005) the iodine test is used to detect starch and glycogen, the benedict’s test is used to test for reducing sugars and the biuret test is used to detect protein. Lab, you will utilize the following procedures to detect three of these macromolecules in everyday household items ‐ note what each procedure will detect in which macromolecules test (procedure) structure/ molecule.
Test tube as follows: 10 drops of biuret solution, 3 ml of benedict’s solution (the test tube was heated and then cooled as described above), 5 drops of lugol’s iodine solution, 8 drops of indophenol, and 5 drops of silver nitrate solution. What macromolecules would you expect to find in the stomach contents test for each organic macromolecule using information given in class, write out the procedure for testing lab analysis 1) write out a descriptive title for table 2, and fill in the table with your results 2) report your findings in discussion format open the. Elvire nyake lab report macromolecules abstract this lab was done to test for macromolecules consisting of carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids by using specific reagents to test for each the result would bring out a specific color change in the macromolecule a color change would verify the sample positive for that macromolecule for simple sugar, benedict’s solution was used. This lab reinforces the differences in the properties of the various types of macromolecules and it provides the opportunity to do some science that is follow the procedures for the macromolecule test and for each procedure test the positive. Macromolecules overview most organic compounds in living organisms are carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, or nucleic acids each of these macromolecules is made of smaller subunits held together by covalent bonds the purpose of this lab is to use chemical tests to identify known and unknown solutions of macromolecules objectives at the completion of this laboratory, you should be able to.
In this review i provide information on the different detection tests that we performed to determine if certain macromolecules were present in our experimental solutions. Starch macromolecules bring one food or drink to lab that you think contains one of these compounds as an experimental sample (share with your lab partners) each test will use a different indicator reagent that will change color in the presence of the particular organic compound that. Lab 4: macromolecules the four major kinds of macromolecules are carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids carbohydrates, proteins and nucleic acids are polymers made of smaller scientists use chemical assays to test for the presence of a certain molecule or a class of molecules often the test (or the assay) will. The four different macromolecules are carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids the monomeric unit for carbohydrates is sugar, lipids are built from fatty acids, nucleic acids are made of nucleotides, and proteins are made from amino acids.
Biological macromolecules lab cells, the fundamental units of life, are composed of various combinations of organic macromolecules: carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids this lab exercise is designed to show you the qualitative tests commonly used to detect their presence. Hi i did this lab where the starting substances i am testing are protein solution, vegetable oil, glucose solution, sucrose solution, starch solution and distilled wateri used benedict's solution, iodine solution, paper test and the biuret reagent, to test all of the starting substances for macromolecules i need help with following question. • to perform tests that detect the presence of carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids each class of these macromolecules has different structures and properties for example, lipids (composed of fatty acids) have bio 3a lab: biologically important molecules page 5 of 11.
