Smart-Pore™ consists of 4 independent channels. The larger upper parts are the input channels and measure approximately 500μm x 60μm x 10mm. Each fluid line ends with a thin microfluidic channel: the biopores. These are biomimetic channels representing the sweat pore of a human body. They have a width of 60μm, a height of 60μm and a length of 2mm. These biopores lead to a flat surface representing the skin.
The photo shows a chip filled with artificial sweat. The four fluid lines appear yellow thanks to the fluorescent dye, with the liquid flush on the surface.
