AixSense is pleased with its outstanding performance at SensUs 2023, hosted by Eindhoven University of Technology, from which the student team emerged with the highest number of awards. Competing with 14 renowned universities, the interdisciplinary team from RWTH Aachen University presented a blood-based point-of-care biosensor for the detection of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and combined it with a promising business strategy. On August 31, 2023, the team presented the jury with the technical intricacies of their biosensor chip, which was developed from scratch in the clean room and laboratory, as well as the business plan.
