This user-friendly device consists of a sweat collection clip, an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) biosensor, and a color densitometry-based iPhone app to monitor wellness. The noninvasive system measures cytokine concentrations in sweat to indicate health or illness. Inventors Riley Ennis ’15, Katherine Franklin ’15, Robert Lauzen ’15, and Kiah Williams ’15 won the Phillip R. Jackson Award for best overall performance in ENGS 21: “Introduction to Engineering.” Their TA was Anne Lape ’13.

Editor’s Note:
DiagnosMe is on its way to becoming a usable reality. DiagnosMe has been registered as an LLC, and the technology is patent-pending. Riley Ellis presented the technology at the New York Stock Exchange in February as part of the Kairos Society’s 50 most inventive student startups.
