This thesis presents new wearable sensing platforms, prepared using an array of microstructures, for detecting health and disease biomarkers. Glucose is a biomarker routinely detected/monitored by diabetic patients when using a painful and invasive procedure. The developed platforms offer user-friendly devices that can continuously monitor glucose found in skin interstitial fluid, or sweat, in a safe and non-invasive way. A second type of wearable platform detects a breast cancer biomarker, also found in interstitial fluid, reliably in short time and can be implemented in cancer diagnostics due to its simplicity and affordability.
