An international competition

SensUs is a yearly international student competition on sensors for health. By involving students, industry, and academia we strive to accelerate the development of sensors for health for a better future.

During SensUs 2018, students from all over the world compete to make the best biosensor for vancomycin, an antibiotic. On 7 and 8 September 2018 the teams will showcase their biosensors at Eindhoven University of Technology. Their biosensors will be judged on multiple criteria such as analytical performance, creativity, and industrialization potential, by representatives of academia, industry, and healthcare.
