At ITU Seed Big Bang 2015’s final, Vivosens Biosensor Project won the "Istanbul Chamber of Industry (ISO) Industrialist of the Future Grand Prize". The project, developed by bioengineer Miray Tayfun, is a biosensor platform to change and facilitate the diagnostic process entirely with a portable measuring device and kits for diseases. Vivosens Biosensor ranked first amongst the 20 finalists of the ITU Seed Big Bang 2015 contest and won a cash prize of 260,000 TL in total from 11 institutions. Adnan Dalgakıran, Vice President of ISO Board said “As ISO, we were a mediocre institution, so we held two industrial conferences on the transformation of culture. Unfortunately Turkey is mediocre in all areas and as a country, we can only overcome this by working harder.” Bioengineer Miray Tayfun, the founder of the Vivosens Biosensor project team, said "Our project, a biosensor platform to facilitate and change the diagnostic process entirely, consists of a portable measuring device and kits for various diseases. This study will make it possible to run diagnostic procedures everywhere, without requiring a laboratory. Maybe, in 2020, we will be able to run a check-up on ourselves every morning with a drip of blood via Vivosens."
