PCR Reaction Report

Fluorimeter Procedure

Imaging set-up
Use iphone camera to record pictures of the solution drops Turn off the flash
Set ISO to 800 or higher
Set white balance to auto
Set exposure to highest setting
Set saturation to the highest setting
Set contrast to the lowest setting
Set the camera timer to 3 seconds

Placing Samples onto the Fluorimeter

  1. Place 160 microliter drops of H2O betwwen the center rows on a glass test sheet using the pipettor
  2. Switch on the light in the excitation light
  3. Turn on and set up camera with correct settings
  4. Place camera in the cradle and line up the camera to take a profile picture of the solution drop
  5. Place 80 microliters of SYBR Green I to the solution drop
  6. Use your timer to take a picture of the solution drop and place the box over the apparatus to prevent light from shining in"
  7. repeat steps 1-6 for each solution and PCR sample
  8. record the data

  • Our negative control PCR result was 185.2 μg/mL

Observed results

  • Patient 57027 : The green was very visible on all 3 trials of this patient. We observed 402.1 ug/mL for this patient.
  • Patient 97392 :The green dot was not visible in these trials and we observed 223.5 ug/mL for this patient.


  • Patient 57027 : This patient's results were very similar to the positive control so we concluded this patient was positive.
