Abstract: 
This work presents the optimization of electrical parameters and sampling platforms to maximize the sensitivity of conductivity measurements for applications in wearable sweat sensing. Capacitively coupled contactless conductivity detection (C4D) was used to test microelectrodes in preparation for the creation and development of an on-body detection system for sweat analysis. In addition, various polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) microchannels of various configurations were tested for their compatibility with the system and their enhancement effect on signal sensitivity.
