T.E.S.T is the student-team from Eindhoven University of Technology that participates in the Sensus competition. The team consists of eleven students from different disciplines and includes bachelor students from the faculties Biomedical Engineering, Medical Engineering and Technology, Applied Physics, Chemical Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering and Psychology and Technology. For this competition, we will create a biosensor to detect an antibiotic called vancomycin. The detection and measurement of vancomycin needs to be very precise to be efficient and not harmful for patients. Such a biosensor will make the lives of many patients easier. We are very excited to create a good and functional product that can be used in real life.
The team from Eindhoven University of 2017 won lots of prices last year, so we will try our best to work up to their achievements. Information about the teams from 2016 and 2017 can be found in Previous Teams. For more information about the competition we participate in, click here.
The first meeting of our team.
The technical aim of the competition is released, defining e.g. the biomarker and the sample matrix.
Today we were present at the innovation for health congress. Here, the newest innovations concerning health and life sciences were presented
This week, we started with the first experiments in our chemical lab
After some experiments in our chemical lab, we started working on a correct setup for our detecting principle
We made it to the top 20 of TU/e Contest! This means that we will participate in the final event where we will pitch our biosensor to a lot of interesting business partners
This tuesday T.E.S.T. joined the TU/e contest in the student team category. It was an exciting day with many great pitches. This day ended in an amazing victory of T.E.S.T. winning! We want to thank the judges and the team of TU/e Contest for this awesome day.
While testing in the lab today, we have concluded that our proof of concept works!
