Company Profile
The Advanced MicroChem Kit was designed to be a serious first year college / high school AP level chemistry lab curriculum. This kit is an extremely cost effective solution usable in schools as a huge convenience for teachers or in the home for distance learning / independent study students (under parent/adult supervision).
We reviewed the College Board's® recommendations, included the labs they suggested, then added a few more for a total of 30 experiments. This chemistry lab course is based on the Microscale method, which uses about 1/100th of the chemicals a typical lab would consume. Most the chemical reagents are supplied in dropper bottles that are ready-to-go and do not require any mixing or further preparation. For added safety, there are no concentrated acids or bases in the kit.

The Advanced MicroChem Kit includes two books:
First, a 148-page manual that explains each experiment in detail covering: Goals, Background (a short pre-lab lecture), Materials and Equipment, and the step-by-step Procedures.
Secondly, a Lab Workbook, similar to lab notebooks used in most colleges. The Lab Workbook becomes a lasting record of each students laboratory work. The student takes notes, fills out tables, calculates results, answers questions, and formulates conclusions in the Lab Workbook.

The Advanced MicroChem Kit is intended as a full year of AP level experiments and includes the following experiments:
