Title: EPIDERMAL MICROFLUIDIC SENSOR FOR SWEAT COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS FROM AQUATIC ATHLETES
Abstract:
Provided herein are epidermal microfluidic systems and methods that allow for the collection of biofluids in a wet or aquatic environment, for example, from the surface of the skin. The described systems allow for the efficient collection of biofluids, without loss of the biofluid to the surrounding environment or introduction of extraneous liquids from the environment. The described microfluidic systems are versatile and can provide information regarding a number of biofluid properties both electronically and colorimetrically/visually.
