Title: WEARABLE SWEAT BIOSENSING DEVICES WITH ACTIVE SWEAT SAMPLE COUPLING
Abstract:
A device (100) for sensing a first analyte in sweat on skin includes an analyte-specific sensor (120) for sensing the first analyte and an active sweat coupling component (130) for transporting at least one sweat sample inside the device (100) and into fluid communication with the analyte- specific sensor (120). A method of sensing a first analyte in sweat on skin includes actively transporting at least one sweat sample into fluid communication with an analyte- specific sensor (120) for sensing the first analyte using an active sweat coupling component (130) and sensing the first analyte using the analyte-specific sensor (120).
