Course evaluation for BEB and Ph.D students 


The students will now be commercial representatives of a company that sells equipment OR reagents for cell respiratometry. Based on what you learned in this course, and based in technical brochures of the equipment/reagents you observed, your task is to:


1) In 10-15 lines (Times New Roman, Font 12) introduce your product, either an equipment or a specific reagent to measure oxygen consumption in cells. In that text you have to provide:



a) The name of the product/reagent (imagination!!)

b) the features it has, including possible uses

c) the benefits to the client vs. existing solutions

d) the price

e) (not mandatory) a photo of the equipment/reagent (the crazier the better)
