Arrange a field trip to Biotility

Biotility has a variety of hands-on biotech Lab Experiences for all levels of students, ranging from learning pipetting skills to protein purification! We will guide your students through an exciting Lab Experience using the latest molecular biotechnology techniques. Each Lab Experience will include a lecture tailored to your students’ ages and your curriculum content. We are able to schedule field trips Tuesday – Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Invoicing occurs after your field trip is scheduled. Online payment with credit card or PCard is available through the University of Florida’s secure payment site (a link will be sent with the invoice), or we accept checks and P.O.s.

All of us at the University of Florida have an obligation to each do our part to prevent further transmission of COVID-19.  It is the right thing to do — and medical experts say vaccination and masking are the best ways to do it. Therefore, we are advising you of the following steps we are taking in our efforts to ensure a safe and successful live course.

  • Effective immediately, in light of new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it is expected that everyone will wear a mask at all times when inside any UF facility, even if you are vaccinated.
    • This includes students, faculty, staff, vendors and visitors. Recent studies and guidance from the CDC state that both unvaccinated and vaccinated individuals can transmit the current COVID-19 variant to unvaccinated persons.
  • Social distancing will be practiced whenever possible.
  • Biotility reserves the right to postpone or cancel any event in accordance with the goal of minimizing transmission.

Reactions from educators

    My experience with Biotility was amazing! The students were exposed to how and where scientists work in biotechnology industries. Moreover, Biotility is an interactive field trip, students have the opportunity to realize some interesting and entertaining labs such as ELISA test or manipulating DNA which gives them hands on experience with laboratory equipment. I highly recommend biotechnology teachers to take students to Biotility for it provides an out of the classroom experience of biotech.

    My classes have been going to Biotility for years and it is always a great experience. The lessons are targeted to the needs of my students, hold their interest, allow them to use “cool” equipment, and reinforces the lessons from class. The staff are always able to relate to the students and talk at a level they can understand. It is a great experience for them and the students and learn about the biotechnology incubator right next door.
