The Effect of Alcohol on Biological Membranes

Procedures - Prepare the Beet

Figure 2

7. Now, obtain a piece of beet root from your instructor. Cut 18 squares, each 1 cm X 1 cm X 0.5 cm in size. They should be able to fit into a microwell easily, without being wedged in. Be sure:

  • There are no ragged edges.
  • No piece has any of the outer skin on it.
  • All of the pieces are the same size.
  • The pieces do not dry out.

8. Rinse the beet pieces twice using a small amount of water. Immediately drain off the water. This will wash off any pigment released during the cutting process.
