The Health Risk Detection (HRD) Kit is the project idea of the iGEM team from the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. We will present innovation at the iGEM (International Genetically Engineered Machine) competition in Boston, USA.
‘To sense or not to sensor, try to be SENSIBLE!’
Everyone feels unwell from time to time. You visit the doctor and might need to do a test to determine the cause of your feeling under the weather. The test needs to be sent to the lab for examination and it can take up to a few days before you receive the results.
The HRD kit is a detection system that is flexible, specific, user-friendly and only needs a short amount of time to give you the results. Most importantly, you can use it at home. We are aiming for it to be composable; you decide what type of kit you need. Think of a kit for heart disease, organ dysfunction, or even a travelers’ kit for foreign diseases.
