Initial Machine Testing

The Original Design

Open PCR Solid Works Design.png

Experimenting With the Connections

When we unplugged the LED from the Open PCR circuit board, the machine stop displaying information on the display.

When we unplugged the white wire that connects the Open PCR circuit board to Main heat sink, the machine incorrectly displays the temperature as negative 40 degrees Celsius.

Test Run

(Write the date you first tested Open PCR and your experience(s) with the machine)


Polymerase Chain Reaction

Reagent Volume
Template DNA (20 ng) .2 μL
10 μM forward primer 1.0 μL
10 μM reverse primer 1.0 μL
GoTaq master mix 50.0 μL
dH2O 47.8 μL
Total Volume 100.0 μL

Fluorimeter Measurements

(Add your work from Week 3, Part 2 here)

Research and Development

Specific Cancer Marker Detection - The Underlying Technology

(Add a write-up of the information discussed in Week 3's class)

(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 OpenPCR tutorial might be useful. Be sure to credit the source if you borrow images.)


(Your group will add the results of your Fluorimeter measurements from Week 4 here)
