Employees at Stanford University have invented a device for instant analysis of cortisol, which will allow to immediately measure the level of stress.

Stress affects such indicators of human activity, blood pressure, metabolism, immunity and memory. Therefore, it can contribute to the development of chronic diseases. In order to efficiently deal with stress, it is necessary first to fix, and what scientists do.

Cortisol is one of the best markers of stress. To this day the stress level measured at body temperature and heart rate, which did not give accurate results. The analysis of cortisol level were held in the laboratory, which did not allow to capture short-term stress.

A group of researchers from USA and France under the leadership of Alberto Salleo has created a portable device in the form of a patch, which is fixed to the human skin. Catching drops of sweat, the detector draws them into the tank and analyses. Scientists have verified the accuracy of the measurements on the volunteers and it was at the level of laboratory analysis.

In the future, the researchers intend to create a similar device for everyday life. It can be used for early diagnosis of diseases or during physical training. In addition, the detector will let you know the emotional state of children who still do not know how to speak.
