Cell lysis protocol

We are interested in the influence of light scattering of bacteria in the arsenic detection. In order to test that we had to purify the GFP from bacterias. 449 more words


Midterm presentation and feedback for the spring EPFL team

We had a chance to share our plans with Prof. Jan van der Meer (UNIL) and Dr. Sabrina Leuenberger (Biosafety expert University of Bern) on the 27 March. 824 more words


Realization of the double cap

After 3D modeling, we try to make a double cap by hand.

We start from the vial caps with a hole covered by a silicon septum. 256 more words


Prototype v2.1 - First Tests

We have begun testing our prototype, as said in this article!

Cream :

This test was done to see how the scattering and excitation LED’s are sensed when measuring with different concentration of scattering medium. 435 more words


Analysis of our prototype

What we were focusing on for the last months was factorising the process of our prototype, to be able to precisely understand which part does not work, instead of looking at the whole process not working and wondering why! 231 more words


Prototype - Second version

Finally, after encountering every possible problems, the second version of the prototype is ready, working and has already been tested!

The new features of the prototype include : 111 more words


Cap for Fieldwork

One of the aim of the spring team at EPFL was to design a new cap for secure sample collection. We need to keep the GMO reporter bacteria from being released into the environment. 682 more words
