The inspiration for this post comes from two things happening this year for me.
- I am still in the Project Officer position running major projects across our college and teaching one class only this year (Year 11 Design and Technology). 706 more words
The idea behind this circuit was to model the detection of the fluorescence emitted by the bacteria: if we apply an intense source of light directly to the light-to-frequency converter (which is the same than the one used in the prototype), it models a great intensity of green fluorescence (and thus supposedly a large concentration of Arsenic in the sample). 463 more words
The first step to improve the prototype of the double cap was to define the optimal proportion of the double cap connector. To recall, the connector function is to pierce an aluminum seal to allow the flow of the bioreporter into the water sample, after having started to screw the two vials together. 321 more words
