PCR Reaction Report

The team's experience with pipetting the samples went well. The pre-lab reading was helpful. It was easy to understand the difference between the first and second stop of the pipettor. The first stop suctions the desired amount, and the second stop puts the liquid in the tube. There was liquid left in the tubes that the DNA samples and PCR reaction mix. The team had to change the labeling scheme by placing the stickers on top of the tubes.

Fluorimeter Procedure

Web camera set-up
The program ImageJ was installed on a PC, so that it could be used to analyze the photos. A webcam was then placed in a shadowbox with a fluorimeter, and then several pictures were taken of both the SYBR Green I with the water blank, and SYBR Green I with the PCR solution.

Placing Samples onto the Fluorimeter

  1. Place SYBR Green I on a slide in the middle.
  2. Turn on the fluorimeter's excitation light.
  3. Adjust phone or webcam.
  4. Take a picture of the reaction.
