The fabrication of fully screen-printed biochemical sensors employing planar integrated solid state electrodes is described. The sensors are developed to fit wearable devices and target the monitoring of ammonia respectively ammonium levels in sweat. Increased ammonium levels in sweat correlate to physical overstrain of muscles, indicated by the breakdown of proteins in muscle cells. The sensor on flexible foil uses an ion-selective working electrode and a reference electrode for potentiometric… CONTINUE READING
