A new success story: Xsensio, founded as a spin-off of The Nanoelectronic Devices Laboratory (NANOLAB) at the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (CH), is aiming to commercially exploit novel field-effect transistor (FET) sensors in order to develop a wearable tool which senses biochemical information on the skin’s surface (from electrolytes to metabolites, small molecules and proteins) to provide unprecedented real-time information about our health and wellness, in a simple and non-invasive way.

Sweat on the skin’s surface can provide a wealth of information that is currently not exploited to support health care and wellness applications. Until recently, there was no technology available to continuously collect sweat and analyse its composition in real time, but recent advances in miniaturized sensing and computing have paved the way for a fundamental paradigm shift.
