What are Biomedical Sciences Simulations?

Last Updated on December 25, 2023 by Nourhan Essam

Biomedical Sciences Simulations are virtual simulations that are used to learn and understand several topics in physiology, human anatomy, pathology, and more in a 3D interactive environment. They also help enhance students’ chemistry and biology skills that are relevant to healthcare.

In this blog, we will explore what are biomedical sciences simulations  and how these simulations enhance the students’ experience and learning outcomes, especially in biomedical sciences.

What are Biomedical Sciences Simulations?

Virtual biomedical sciences simulations enhance student experiences by providing a 3D immersive and flexible environment for more engagement and understanding of complex concepts. These simulations enable students to safely and easily conduct their biomedical simulations anytime, anywhere and an unlimited number of times. 

Simulations for Exploring Complex Concepts

Virtual biomedical sciences simulations, offered by PraxiLabs Virtual Labs, provide several accessible lab simulations to support biomedical courses and online biomedical lectures, involving several disciplines such as molecular biology, immunology, biochemistry, microbiology, toxicology, pharmacology, cell culture, and more.

So, by using these biomedical simulations, students can explore basic and complex concepts in biology and chemistry that empower them to enhance their knowledge and skills in biomedical science.

Biomedical science simulations from PraxiLabs are designed to make virtual science labs accessible, usable, and affordable for universities, schools or any educational institutions. PraxiLabs not only offers an immersive and interactive virtual lab experience, but also provides enriched content, offering students a deeper understanding and knowledge base for exploring complex concepts in simulations.

Learn Biomedical Sciences with PraxiLabs Virtual Labs Simulations

Biomedical Sciences involve all science branches that focus on the biology of human health and disease. It ranges from the generic study of biomedical sciences and human biology to more specialized subject areas.

Biomedical Sciences are underpinned by relevant basic sciences including cell biology, biochemistry, microbiology, genetics, molecular biology, pharmacology, immunology, and anatomy and physiology.

Let’s take some examples of PraxiLabs’ virtual lab simulations:

Adherent Cell Culturing using Mammalian Cell Lines

This experiment shows how cells are cultured, propagated, sub-cultured, and frozen in liquid nitrogen for long-term storage. Cell culturing is a very critical protocol for preparing cells needed for all subsequent in assays such as  in vitro cytotoxicity and genotoxicity.

Production of Monoclonal Antibodies

This simulation aims to teach students the production of one type of antibody derived from a single cloned B cell.

Antibiotic Sensitivity Test Disc Diffusion Method Virtual Lab

This test determines the susceptibility of a microbial species against different antibiotic agents.

Bacterial Plating Out Technique Experiment (streak plate method) Virtual Lab

The plating-out technique experiment demonstrates the process of isolating bacteria into a pure culture from a mixed population. 

Elisa Virtual Lab

This experiment is used to detect and measure the concentration of an analyte (usually antibodies, antigens, hormones, proteins or peptides) in solutions.

In Vitro Cell Viability by the Lactate Dehydrogenase Assay (LDH)

This experiment aims to determine the activity of the cytoplasmic enzyme lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) released by damaged cells after exposure to the geometric concentration of different nanoparticles.

Annexin V Assay Virtual Lab Simulation

This experiment aims at detecting and quantifying apoptotic and necrotic cells through Annexin-V binding and Propidium Iodide (PI) uptake using a fluorescent microscope.

In-Vitro Chromosomal Aberrations Test Virtual Lab Simulation

This simulation aims at detecting structural chromosomal aberrations by estimating different classes of chromosome changes scored in metaphase using the light microscope.

Conventional PCR

This experiment is used to amplify DNA fragments using the Polymerase Chain Reaction (conventional PCR) technique.

Western Blot

This experiment is used to understand how to detect a specific protein in a sample using the western blot technique.

In Vitro 8-Hydroxydeoxy Guanosine (8-OHdG) Assay

This test aims at visualizing the response of protein recruitment to DNA damage sites. DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) induce the hydroxylation of 2’-deoxyGuanosine to form 8-Hydroxy, 2’-deoxy Guanosine (8-OHdG), and accumulate 8-OHdG which can then be detected as foci.

The detection of 8-OHdG foci by immunostaining with antibodies that recognize 8-OHdG is an indicator of DSBs presence. This assay is also used to describe the measurement of 8-OHdG immunostaining using a fluorescent microscope.

Bridging the Gap with Biomedical Sciences Simulations

Bridging the Gap with Biomedical Sciences Simulations

Biomedical science simulations play a vital role in keeping all students engaged and enhancing their learning outcomes.  They can also  be utilized to bridge the gap between lab and lecture courses, as they are used for pre-lab preparation, biomedical courses, online biomedical lectures, or in conjunction with textbooks.

Students benefit from realistic learning experiences through virtual labs, as highlighted by Crys Wright, Teaching Assistant from Texas A&M University, USA.

Motivation and Skill Development

Motivation and Skill Development

Immersive and interactive virtual lab simulations have been shown to enhance student motivation in biomedical science education. By engaging students with creative digital tools, these simulations help empower students to develop essential knowledge and skills in biomedical science. These tools also help build scientific skills in higher education, as well as in-demand, transportable skills like problem-solving, critical and creative thinking, communication, and collaboration.


In conclusion, virtual biomedical sciences simulations offer a flexible, interactive, and immersive learning environment that enhances student experiences, fosters motivation, and facilitates the development of essential skills in biomedical science education. These simulations play a crucial role in preparing students for future careers and empowering them to thrive in an evolving world of biomedical sciences.
