Lab on a chip for sweat testing

By Maja Bosanac
7 December 2017

epfl-lab-on-a-chipCollaboration between EPFL’s Nanoelectronic Devices Laboratory (Nanolab) researchers and startup Xsensio resulted in development of a low-power and portable sensing chip. The chip can be put directly on skin, or integrated into wearables in order to track real-time different biochemical and physical parameters in a person’s sweat. Xsensio was founded in 2014 as a spinoff… »
