Cellock Holmes - A Case of Identity

Welcome to the iGEM Aachen 2014 Wiki!

Until now, an ideal method to detect pathogenic bacteria is still elusive. The existing techniques require expensive equipment, trained personnel or labourious routines.

We the Aachen iGEM team, have developed a novel biosensor system called Cellock Holmes that detects bacteria on solid surfaces.

In this project, we demonstrate a unique way of combining Open Source biology, software and hardware to detect pathogens using a low-cost, rapid and portable device.
