Ms. Conway’s Biomed I students continued their investigation into the mysterious death of Anna Garcia by testing her unknown stomach contents using various indicator substances. The cadets tested for the presence of glucose by adding Benedict’s solution to the sample and heating it for 3 minutes. As seen in the pictures below, the sample changed from bright blue to dark orange when glucose is present. The cadets also tested various food samples for lipids, starches, and proteins.
