Portable Incubator for Paper Biosensor
MAS: Media Arts and Sciences
The goal of this project will be to update an existing low-cost fluorescence reader for paper-based biosensor analysis. This will include developing increased resolution for fluorescence readers and adding incubation capabilities and control. This reader will be used for a paper-based water monitoring program for detection of microbial contamination. There is ongoing fieldwork for this project and opportunities to participate!
Experience with microcontrollers (Arduino/Adafruit Feather), Arduino IDE, and EAGLE is required, experience with peltier modules and data logging is preferred. Student should be interested in managing their own time.
