* Ave. INTDEN = Average of ImageJ integrated density values from three Fluorimeter images
Bayes Theorem equation: P(AB) = P(BA) * P(A) / P(B)
Calculation 3: The probability that the patient will develop cancer, given a cancer DNA sequence.
New System: Design StrategyWe concluded that a good system Must Have:  Result easy to determine.  Simple OpenPCR Software: The OpenPCR Software shoulder be simple and easy to use and that would help lab experiments done faster, rather than the need to spend extra time to figure out how the software works. We concluded that we would Want a good system to have:  Low cost: OpenPCR $599 Fluorimeter $300. A low cost material would help since there is always a limited budget for the research experiment. This would allow us to buy more OpenPCR and fluorimeter and create more data results in the same amount of time. Phone camera should not be easily moveable when played in front of the fluorimeter. Phone camera adjustment can be time consuming and not setting it in the correct position/distance results data error.
 Troublesome USB Connectivity. USB connectivity should function well in order for OpenPCR machine to work.  Casing = fire hazard. High temperature with PCR can be dangerous.
We concluded that a good system Should Avoid:  Avoid slow amplification.  Hard to adjust phone/ fluorimeter. The phone can be easily moved by accident, which requires readjustment between the phone and the fluorimeter.
