THE DRIVING FORCE

Our goal is to standardise the output of biosensors, and to develop a cheap, user-friendly kit to be used in the field

Parts for a Reliable and Field Ready Biosensing Platform

OVERVIEW

There are many biosensors available but there is no standard way to deploy them. Many are also non-quantitative and unpredictable. We have been working on a ratiometric luciferase output which can be read by an Arduino device. This output could be used with theoretically any biosensor. We investigated the potential of riboswitches as future biosensors. We use a B.subtilis chassis as these form low maintenance spores for easy, long-term storage.
