T.E.S.T. 2020 is a student team which develops a biosensor device that is used to measure the concentration of Valproate (an anti-epileptic drug). The goal of such a device is to improve the life of the patient by actively monitoring the drug concentrations in the blood of the patient.

T.E.S.T. is still looking for members, especially Physics and Electrical Engineering students. T.E.S.T. is a great opportunity to come into contact with research and gain practical experience in a multidisciplinary team.
From scratch a biosensor device is designed and produced. The technical tasks which are part of developing the device are: developing a micro fluidical system, creating an optical setup, building hardware, writing software, and modeling the exterior of the sensor. You will have your own dedicated budget and you will have complete freedom in the design of the device. The illustration is an example of our set-up of 2018

The first step of the development process is choosing a biochemical assay, followed by developing this method in the chemical lab and the above mentioned technical tasks. You can also improve your soft skills, like pitching, networking, planning and leadership.
If you have any questions, e-mail info@tuetest.nl.
If you would rather organize the competition T.E.S.T. takes part in, joining Sensus might be more suitable for you.

To join T.E.S.T., please send your motivation letter and curriculum vitae to Leo van IJzendoorn (L.J.van.ijzendoorn@tue.nl). Based on your motivation letter you will be invited for an interview.

Your motivation letter should include at least the following:
- Introduce yourself (your bachelor / master program, year of study)
- Why do you want to join T.E.S.T.?
- What do you expect from T.E.S.T. and what do you want to learn?
- What do you have to offer? (Here you can mention relevant courses and activities you have done in the past)

Milestones


First Meeting

  19 November 2018

The first meeting of our team.

Method is chosen

  6 February 2019

We picked bioluminescence as our method to base our sensor on.

Labwork started

  3 March 2019

We started working in the lab of Chemical Biology on the Tu/e campus. We have practised making proteins and will continue working on this until the end of next week. Afterwards, we are hoping to start by performing our own experiments.

First sponsor Biorad

  11 April 2019

Biorad is our first acquired partner.

Proof of concept

  18 April 2019

The assay is working, now we will continue to optimize it!

Sponsor Promega

  18 March 2019

We have Promega as a new partner.

Sponsor ICT

  1 June 2019

We have ICT as a new partner.

Winners of Sensus 2019

  30 August 2019

We won 2 prizes! The first place in analytical performance and the first place in creativity. The whole team is really proud to end up with such amazing results. We want to thank our supervisers Leo van IJzendoorn, Rafiq Lubken and Claudia Schot. Also we couldn't have done it without the help of Maarten Merkx, Yan Ni, Bart Timmermans, Sophia Shanko, Willem Rovers, Ivar de Vries and our sponsors.

New members
