Title: MICROFLUIDIC SYSTEMS FOR EPIDERMAL SAMPLING AND SENSING
Abstract:
Provided are microfluidic systems for monitoring a biofluid property and related methods. Specially configured microfluidic networks and associated structural support and functional elements, including flexible substrates, capping layers, and fluidic conduits and controllers, provide reliable biofluid collection. Optical components and indicators provide a reliable and readily observable readout, including of any of a number of biofluid properties, including directly from biofluid collected in the microfluidic network.
