In order to achieve the application of our engineered bacteria in practise, we designed the expired drugs recycling and degrading device (Drug Avenger) and the fluorescence detection device.
Expired drugs recycling and degrading device (Drug Avenger) was used to recycle expired drugs. The modular design allowed for the recovery of three types of drugs. Fig. 2. and animation show the design and theoretical ideas.

In the development process of hardware, our detection device module had been updated three iderations, and finally the third generation version was designed and realized.

We plan to develop more functional module based on the design and theoretical ideas. We also hope to optimize the design detection module to get more stable and efficient signals. We also aim to reduce the cost of this device.
