Vancomycin

SensUs 2018 challenged student teams to develop innovative biosensing systems for the measurement of the antibiotic drug vancomycin. Antibiotic drugs are widely used in society. Unfortunately, the massive use of drugs causes Anti-Microbial Resistance (AMR). On a personal level, a vancomycin biosensor could help to provide patients with the right dose, thereby increasing the effectiveness and reducing the side effects of drug treatment.
