  • WHAT is SensUs?

    An international competition

    14 universities all around the world

    Biosensors that could potentially be used by patients in the future

    Students make and design innovative biosensors

    SensUs stimulates the development of biosensors for healthcare applications in a friendly competitive manner

  • Uppsala teams: SensUs 2016-2019

  • SensUs 2020

    ▶︎ A commonly-used broad spectrum anti-epileptic drug

    ▶︎Monitoring would increase the added value because:

    ➤ non-linear relation between the administered dose and the blood drug concentration

    ➤ high inter-individual variability
