UCSD Researchers Develop a Wearable Skin Patch That Monitors Blood Pressure, Glucose Levels, and Other Biomarkers in Human Sweat

Skin patch technologies could enable clinical laboratories to monitor patients’ vitals and report to medical professionals in real time Pathologists and clinical laboratory leaders have read many Dark Daily ebriefings on the development of skin patches over the years that do everything from monitoring fatigue in the military to being a complete lab-on-skin technology. Now, researchers at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) have developed a wearable patch that can monitor...

Wearable Tattoo Can Monitor Blood Alcohol Levels with Diagnostic Technologies Familiar to Clinical Laboratory Scientists

The minute electronic device accurately determines alcohol blood levels by sampling the wearer’s sweat During a night out on the town, what better way for individuals to monitor their consumption of alcohol and blood alcohol levels than by wearing a tattoo that can monitor blood alcohol levels? That’s the vision of researchers at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). This temporary tattoo would be capable of helping an individual determine, “Am I drunk or just slightly buzzed.
