2018: Canditect – easy detection of Candida albicans (completed)

Our product could contribute to the proper use of antimycotics and thus we could do our part in reducing antimicrobial resistance worldwide. The beauty of this system is its sheer flexibility. By changing the guide RNA, we can adapt the system to detect almost any organism containing DNA, with high accuracy. If we are successful, our system can be readily applied to cover diagnostics for several diseases.
