This year the iGEM team of the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences decided to develop a universal assay to detect certain disease targets in novel and unique ways. The Health Risk Detection Kit (HRD Kit) was intended to enable consumers to detect a risk of illness at home. The HRD Kit would be expected to provide fast, definitive results, enabling consumers to make better medical decisions. We considered the use of several possible technologies, including aptamers, zinc fingers, split TEV protease, and the enzyme β-lactamase.
iGEM Rotterdam 2019 centralizes documentation with eLabJournal
Challenge – Access to centralized data
Solution – Increased efficiency
Result – Compliance with iGEM competition documentation requirements
In my experience, eLabJournal has been a great help in organizing our data and products. This software is very user-friendly and very professional to use both for students and researchers.
