Revolutionary Biosensor Technology - Detect Cholera in Water
Research Summary and Technology
A biosensor technology to revolutionize cholera detection in water. By querying large, curated databases and constructing a working database, she identified the signature barcode for the cholera-causing microorganism. Through aptamer synthesis and experimentation, she aims to create a portable and user-friendly biosensor for early cholera detection. The intended customers are government agencies, public health organizations, non-profits, and academic institutions involved in waterborne disease prevention. The end users are individuals and communities in cholera-prone regions, including those with limited access to clean water. The biosensor's expected outcome is to enable early detection, prompt preventive measures, and the provision of safe drinking water, reducing the impact of cholera outbreaks.
