Our project has two significant hardware contributions: first, is our bioreactor which was designed to maintain growth of our Y. lipolytica strains in cellulose-media. However, the modularity of its design allows to to be adaptable to different applications, while its automated features simplify usability. Our second project is the Randle Cell Testing Device, which is a versatile impedance-based biosensor. We learned that VAD communities are lacking fast diagnostic tools; the Randle's Cell uses an aptamer to measure retinol-binding protein to detect vitamin A deficiency.
