Detector Test Data

The initial concept of the fluorescence detector device had a very rough design. Thus it was built from bits and pieces in order to do a preliminary test and verify its viability.

The preliminary data from the tests showed that the detector was able to differentiate between GFP producing and non-producing bacteria.

From Fig.1 we can see that the detector can easily distinguish the GFP producing culture from below 1/10 dilutions. Thus we continued on and improved the design by soldering some of the circuit and making it more compact. Then we made more test with the Sender and Receiver bacteria.
