a device which uses a living organism or biological molecules, especially enzymes or antibodies, to detect the presence of chemicals.

What are biosensors?

You might have seen people using a glucometer for routine glucose monitoring, fingertip pulse oximeters for measuring oxygen saturation levels and pulse rate, and smartwatches for daily monitoring of our physical activity.

These glucometers, pulse oximeters, and smartwatches are all examples of biosensors.

What do we do?

We are a student team from the University of Twente, Netherlands. And we compete in a international competition yearly hosted by SensUs to develop a biosensor to solve real life medical challenges.

More about the international competition

Each year different student teams across the globe compete in this competition to design and develop a biosensor to tackle the industry standards of biosensors.

Who or what is SensUs?

SenUs is an organisation run by students from Eindhoven University of Technology. The aim is to contribute to the future of health.

Traumatic Brain Injury

2023 Project

GFAP is a biomarker for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). It can reach high concentrations in TBI, resulting in physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and behavioral symptoms. Outcomes can range from complete recovery to permanent disability or death.
