DeTectUs is a team competing in Sensus 2018, its university is the Technical University of Denmark. For Sensus 2018, DeTectUs investigated the possibilities for creating a biosensor which is able to measure the concentration of Vancomycin. The full TRD can be found via this link
Vancocymin binds to a receptor on a metal surface. This creates an electrical signal.
Chemical bonding between the receptor and the analyte.
There is a measurable change in electrical output when there is vancomyocin bound and when there is not
