North Texas researchers develop device that can detect one of COVID’s most serious symptoms

For some time now, medical professionals have known there is a wealth of information contained with a drop of a patient’s sweat. Now, a collaboration of North Texas biomedical researchers has developed a device that can warn doctors of one of the most fatal symptoms of COVID-19.

A group of UT Dallas researchers, led by Shalini Prasad, alongside the team at Allen-based medical sensor device company EnLiSense – which was founded by Prasad to commercialize another product – have unveiled a sweat sensor that can alert doctors of a looming cytokine storm.
