AixSense 2021

Runner-Up Award 2021 Copyright: © IWE1 The "Analytical Performance" evaluation category assesses the functionality and accuracy of the biosensor protoype. The AixSense Team 2021 took second place here.

The Theme

The theme of the 2021 SensUs competition, and thus for the fourth generation of the AixSense team, focused on influenza A. The prototype biosensor had to be designed to detect the virus in saliva samples.

The Team

The fourth generation AixSense team rose to the challenge of the project despite the constraints of the Covid-19 pandemic. Four students from the field of Electrical and Computer Engineering with specializations in Computer Engineering and Micro-Nano Technology formed the team. Led by Daniyar Kizatov, Jiayi He, Anshul Orashar, and Shunjiro Sodei worked on the project.

Award

The team was awarded second place in the category "Analytical Performance" - i.e. for the functionality and accuracy of the sensor prototype.
