Modern diagnostics are inconceivable without quick and robust tests. With today’s lab-on-a-chip applications, cell-free expression comes back into focus. Two German student teams from the Universities of Bielefeld and Freiburg developed new diagnostic tools based on cell-free expression. Freiburg established a label-free screening for diseases; Bielefeld focused on the detection of harmful substances in water. Both systems offer robust and user-friendly alternatives to current diagnostic tools.
