Leiden iGEM team presents award winning research
The Leiden team Rapidemic took first place at the international student competition iGEM in Boston. With Rapidemic, the group of 14 Leiden wants to detect infectious diseases at an early stage. The test kit provides a solution for dangerous infectious diseases even in the most remote areas. A handy box contains, as it were, a complete mini-laboratory, with which a doctor can determine in a short time and with minimal costs whether a patient has the disease in question.
