  • No additional phones or cameras used


Diagram of the set up

Distance and angles between the smart phone and =

  • candle = 3.62cm
  • table = 5.67cm
  • angle from camera to drop = approx 90°

Solutions Used for Calibration

Solution Concetration of SYBR green
1 None (Water)
2 0.25 micrograms per ml
3 0.05 micrograms per ml
4 1.0 micrograms per ml
5 2.0 micrograms per ml
6 5.0 micrograms per ml

Placing Samples onto the Fluorimeter Procedures

  • Aquire following materials :
Materials :
Set of read SYBR green(5 samples)
Superhydrophobic surface
Smart phone
plastic base
small box to set up the phone
  1. Calibrate phone
  2. Carefully palce one drop of sample onto Superhydrophobic surface
  3. Place Superhydrophobic surface onto cradle
  4. Place the big box over cradle to create a dark room
  5. Set up smart phone using plastic base
  6. Take a picture
  7. Repeat steps 2-6 for all 6 samples
  8. Measure distances of phone to table and to cradle
  9. Analyze pictures and write down the observations

Data Analysis

Representative Images of Samples
