A minimally invasive transdermal sensing device, comprising a plurality of individually controllable sites for electrochemically monitoring analytes such as glucose in interstitial fluid. The system includes samplers for retrieving and transferring at least one analyte obtained transdermally from the skin of a subject. A detector identifies, then quantifies said analyte.



Stage of Development
