The scientists of the California Institute of Technology have developed a current sensor to continuously monitor human biological markers by their sweat. The device extracts data from a very small amount of sweat and does so with unprecedented accuracy in a wide range of indicators. Such sensors will help to monitor the state of health much easier and more accurate, which will be used in many areas of life.

Previous versions of these sensors were based on enzymes built into them to detect a limited number of bio-marking compounds. The problem was that the sensors quickly spent active substances. The new technology does not include such consumables, but uses some kind of prints, molecular-printed polymers, which are designed to capture specific molecules and only.

The sensors offered by scientists can identify eight indispensable amino acids and a full range of vitamins. Controlled molecules from sweat penetrate each into their fingerprints. It is very simple to drop such a system -- enough to put on the sensors the enhanced potential and the molecules will be ripped out of the shapes or destroyed. No consumption material is required for the sensors -- they are back to work.

To analyze the biochemical composition of the sweat, a very small amount of sweat is required. This is another raisins of development -- the ability to inject microcanals into the tiny portions of the sweat. By the way, it is electrically stimulated. Since the sweat is needed for a little bit, the electrical discharge stimulator is very weak and does not cause unpleasant sensations.
