We are glad to announce that DSM will sponsor us!
DSM hardly needs an introdcution, but just to be sure:
"Royal DSM is a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials. By connecting its unique competences in life sciences and materials sciences DSM is driving economic prosperity, environmental progress and social advances to create sustainable value for all stakeholders simultaneously."
Thank you, DSM!
Universiteitsfonds Eindhoven (Eindhoven University Fund) just became one of our sponsors! We are very grateful for their support.
Last Friday, Maartje, Jamy and Tim visited the Hartstichting (Dutch Heart Association) in Den Haag. We discussed, among other things, our opinions about the position of the biosensor in the market. It was a valuable Friday afternoon!
Happy International Women's Day! A majority of women in a student team from a university of technology? According to the election debates, it seems still to be in the future, but the TU/e SensUs Team (T.E.S.T.) proves that this is already possible in 2017!
Our chemistry team has started the initial experiments in the lab! The first experiment has finished, we hope to be able to prove the chosen detection principle in the coming weeks.
This morning, Paul and Lotte of the TU/e Sensus Team (T.E.S.T.) gave a presentation during the Slimmer Leven Challenge ("Live Smarter Challenge") about our biosensor. We hope to have inspired the audience to come up with a new innovation in the field of heart failure!
E52 - an independent news platform aimed at bringing news about a innovation to the public - published an article about the TU/e SensUs Team (T.E.S.T.).
High Tech Campus Eindhoven has recently decided to sponsor us after presenting our project and ideas. We are incredibly grateful for this contribution which will significantly aid our development process.
See here our new logo! We replaced the creatinin molecule, the biomarker of last year, by an ECG of a heartbeat. The reason for this is the aim of the SensUs Student Competition of this year: with our biosensor, we want to detect a biomarker that is directly related to heart failure!
Slash, the corporate magazine of TU Eindhoven, has written an article about the developments in healthcare-technology. In this article, members of T.E.S.T. 2016 have been interviewed. Check it out!
Yesterday, the TU/e SensUs Team (T.E.S.T.) visited Future Diagnostics in Wijchen. Future Diagnostics is a leading expert in biosensor development and consultancy. T.E.S.T. 2016 has presented the workings of their biosensor, and we have explained the research which has been carried out until now. All in all, it was a day full of inspiring insights!
We are proud to introduce T.E.S.T. 2017 (TU/e SensUs Team)! Some new team members may join in the following weeks.
The new TU/e SensUs Team has been formed, and the first informal group outing is a fact. The members of the new team, T.E.S.T. 2017, will be introduced soon!
The TU/e SensUs Team (T.E.S.T.) will continue in 2017! A new multidisciplinary team consisting of TU/e Bachelors and Masters students will design and produce an innovative biosensor for detecting NT-proBNP, a protein which can help to predict heart failure. To complete this team, we are still looking for enthusiastic students (BSc or MSc). Would you like to join a team of motivated students driven by the urge to improve modern healthcare? Are you ready to improve both your scientific and professional skills in one of the youngest TU/e student team? For more information, please take a look Here.
After one year of hard work, we can proudly say that we won the Creativity Award at the first edition of the SensUs competition. We want to thank everyone who helped us to achieve this great result. We also want to congratulate KreaSensa with their three awards. It was a great year and good luck to the participating teams in 2017.
We have founded the 'Stichting T.E.S.T. Eindhoven'. This foundation helps the TU/e SensUs Team in its administrative tasks.
We invite you to the SensUs Biosensor Contest that will take place on Saturday 10 September at the Auditorium of the TU/e! You can register for Saturday 10 September on the website. What is SensUs? SensUs is the first international student competition on Molecular Biosensors for Healthcare Applications. On 9 & 10 September, teams from five countries will present their creatinine biosensor that they have developed over the past eight months. Moreover there will be interesting talks from experts in the field of biosensing and stands from our partners. What is the SensUs Event on 10 September? Saturday 10 September is the SensUs Public Event. The student teams will present themselves and their biosensors to the general public. Presentations will also be given by experts in the field. Finally the jury will grant the awards to the winning teams. The Public Event is open to the general public.
In November 2016, a new T.E.S.T. team will be working on developing a biosensor for healthcare applications during the SensUs competition 2017. This year another biomarker will be the subject and so new challenges are created. Interested in joining this team? Click here.
Last Tuesday our treasurer Mark Janse could be heard in 'BNR Nieuwsradio' where he talked about our team and the project. You can listing to the conversation here (Dutch only).
The magazine of the Eindhoven University of Technology, 'De Cursor', placed a nice interview with our own pitcher Leroy Tan. Here he explains the goal of our team and how he sees his role as pitcher. You can find the interview here (Dutch only).
After winning the TU/e Contest, we now won the BrainsAward WO Innovationprize! The BrainsAward is a competition in Eindhoven in which all students from Eindhoven can participate. The jury was unanimous that we had to win and also said that, with our device, we can help millions of people all over the world! This prize will definitely help us to develop our device.
On Tuesday the 17th of May we won the first prize of the prototypes during the TU/e Contest! We also won the prizes of Medtronic and Brightlands and we won guidance and a workplace at the High Tech Campus. We are very happy with this result and we want to thank everyone who helped us to improve our device so far, especially the TU/e and our sponsors. With these prizes we can further develop our device to come to the best results.
Our team has made it to the final of the BrainsAward! Together with us, three other ideas of TU/e students have made it to the final on the 25th of May in the 'Muziekgebouw' in Eindhoven. We think it is amazing that we have made it to the final twenty . The Cursor also wrote a nice piece about the BrainsAward!
From Friday April 22nd until Sunday April 24th 2016 the Eindhoven University of Technology campus was transformed into a festival terrain as the university celebrated its 60th birthday with the Dream and Dare Festival. On Sunday April 24th we did present our team in Auditorium.
It was a great day and the kids had fun with our NanoLuc and MIP games. They looked just like real scientists! We hope we have made a lot of people excited about our project and we even gained some new contacts. In other words, it was a successful day!
Finally, we can proudly present our own website. We are very excited to present TU/e SensUs Team to the world and to show the progress we have made since December 3rd.
TU/e SensUs Team has reached the local media. Eindhovens Dagblad wrote an article about our project. You can read the article here (Dutch only).
The first article about our team in the university paper has emerged and we are very happy with this attention. You can read the article here.
