About This Project

Drinking water contaminated by metals, most notably lead, poses health risks to children and adults alike. However, commercially available at-home detection systems cost about $30 per test. Given the recent lead scare in Flint, Michigan and high levels of lead in many cities across the world, we plan to create a inexpensive biosensor suitable for use at home.
