Heart failure is a very important public health problem in both developed and developing countries with a prevalence of about 1% of the population. This year, SensUs features NT-proBNP as its target molecule, which is a key biomarker for heart failure. But what is NT-proBNP and why is it important? And how does NT-proBNP relate to heart failure? This video explains how the heart functions, what happens when it fails to function, and why NT-proBNP is a very useful molecule to measure with a small and rapid biosensor.

1.7 Million people in the Netherlands suffer from chronic kidney damage and early detection is necessary to prevent for worse. Creatinine is one indicator for kidney diseases and so T.E.S.T. developed a biosensor prototype to determine creatinine concentrations in blood plasma. In this movie the potential of this prototype is shown, keeping in mind that there are still some obstacles that need to be overcome.
