Initial Machine Testing

The Original Design


Experimenting With the Connections

When we unplugged (part 3) from (part 6), the machine ... (did what? fill in your answer) The LCD screen turned off.

When we unplugged the white wire that connects (part 6) to (part 2), the machine ... (did what? fill in your answer) The temperature changed from 26.7 celsius degree to -40 celsius degree.

Test Run

(Write the date you first tested Open PCR and your experience(s) with the machine)
The Open PCR was first tested on October 10th.


Thermal Cycler Program

Group1PCRprogram.jpg DNA Sample Set-up

Tube A: Positive Control: cancer DNA template Tube B: Patient 1 ID-16946 Replicate 1 Tube C: Patient 1 ID-16946 Replicate 2 Tube D: Patient 1 ID-16946 Replicate 3
Tube E: Negative Control: non-cancer DNA template Tube F: Patient 2 ID-46296 Replicate 1 Tube G: Patient 2 ID-46296 Replicate 2 Tube G: Patient 2 ID-46296 Replicate 3

DNA Sample Set-up Procedure

  1. Step 1: Fill each reaction tube with 50μL of the PCR reaction mix and label all tubes according to the chart above
  2. Step 2: Add 50μL of DNA sample mix to the corresponding reaction tube (Note: use each disposable pipette tip only once to avoid cross-contamination)
  3. Step 3: Place to reaction tubes into the thermocycler and run the above program

PCR Reaction Mix The PCR reaction mix will contain 8 tubes. Each tube will contain 50μL of the following:

  • Taq DNA polymerase
  • MgCl2
  • dNTP's

DNA/ primer mix

  • What is in the DNA/ primer mix?

Research and Development

PCR - The Underlying Technology

(Add a write-up, essay-style, organized into paragrpahs with descriptive headers, based on the Q&A's from Section three of your worksheet)

(BONUS points: Use a program like Powerpoint, Word, Illustrator, Microsoft Paint, etc. to illustrate how primers bind to the cancer DNA template, and how Taq polymerases amplify the DNA. Screen-captures from the PCR video/ tutorial might be useful. Be sure to credit the sources if you borrow images.)
