Sweat Sensors - Sensors in Medicine 2022

On the 8th November 2022 ZP will be talking at the Sensors in Medicine 2022 conference in the Sweat Sensors track.



TITLE: Sweat Lactic Acid Sensing - From Idea to Minimally Viable Product


ABSTRACT: ZP is a contract developer and manufacturer of biosensors which are applied into many industries and applications including sports and athletic performance. The analytes that are receiving the most attention at this moment are :

1) Lactate, suitable for monitoring anaerobic respiration.

2) Glucose, suitable to understand the fuel in the body.

3) Hydration, understand the ratio of water to electrolytes.

4) Cortisol, understand the stress on the athlete.

5) Testosterone, understand the hormonal state of the athlete,



In this talk ZP presents a case study where we use a lactate sensor to monitor the lactate levels of a sports person as they progress through aerobic to anaerobic exertion and use this to illustrate the philosophy at ZP to go from idea to real world data without the expected months and sometimes years of lab testing with synthetic samples.



Dr Martin Peacock is an industrial bioelectrochemist with over twenty years of biosensor experience, having had industrial roles from Abbott Diabetes to GSK, and solving technical challenges from continuous glucose monitoring to RNA analysis.  In recent years Martin has set-up biosensor focused companies across the globe from Silicon Valley California to Oslo Norway. 

At Zimmer and Peacock, we are now distilling our experience into providing a turnkey solution to accelerate our collaborators from their research in the lab to products shipping from the loading bay at the factory.  Zimmer and Peacock achieves this acceleration by providing a range of products and services including: sensors, electronics, apps, laboratory testing, Cloud databases, IP generation and turnkey manufacturing.


Zimmer and Peacock works with clients from academia and industry, with the focus always set on getting to market.
