Hybrid e-skin micro-needle sensing system enabled by additive manufacturing

Lead Research Organisation: Imperial College London
Department Name: Materials

Abstract

Wearable microneedle biosensing is a highly promising field which would allow for continuous monitoring of biomarkers in a minimally invasive way. The microneedles penetrate only the top layer of the skin, causing minimum pain to the user while delivering accurate measurements of analytes in the interstitial fluid. The aim of the project is to utilise new 2D materials (such as MXenes or graphene) to deliver innovative microneedle sensors where the new materials would be used to augment the sensing capabilities as well as to provide readout, power storage or power generation functions for the microneedle sensors
