We want to design a mobile and low cost device which can measure the GFP secreted by engineered bacteria. We think that bio-sensor, such as GFP detection is a very promising field in the future.
In addition, we believed that the freeze-dried test paper is a prospective synthetic biology application. By applying the functional bacteria on the test paper and freeze-dry it, the test paper along with the bacteria is easy for storage and can be preserved for a very long time. That’s why we want to innovate an integrated device for this.
Because of the limited of time, this prototype may not achieve our perfect expectations but our device had moved a big forward step for doing an integrated device. Like optical system, bacteria germination system, sample taken up system and so on.
In the future, we will mainly focus on improving our Carindex self-feedback system.
