Overview of the Original Diagnosis System
Calculations 3 and 4 imply that the results were not reliable as the Bayes was not close to 1.00 (100%) and was very small.
TinkerCAD is a building software that has preprogrammed shapes. The group imported the original shapes from the OpenPCR machine and built the original PCR machine. The tools on TinkerCAD were used to ensure that the machine was the correct size.
This design is different from the original PCR machine because it limits the amount of equipment needed for analysis. The fluorimeter is attached to the bottom portion of the PCR machine. The fluorimeter also has a camera attached so errors in analysis can be limited.
Feature 1: Consumables Kit
The PCR machine will come with a consumables kit that includes the following:
The consumables kit will come in a box along with the PCR machine. There will be detailed instructions in what each of the materials do and how to use them.
Feature 2: Hardware - PCR Machine & Fluorimeter
The flourimeter and the PCR machine in the new design are combined in one but do not use the same hardware. The purpose of combing the machines is to limit error and hassle. The flourimeter uses completely different hardware and also has a camera attached to prevent error from analysis.
The fluorimeter uses a camera to analyze the pictures through ImageJ. However, there can be some discrepancies from the camera accidentally moving. We implanted a camera in the flourimeter to limit these discrepancies.
