California startup SensTek has licensed pH sensor technology linked to two issued patents developed by University of Texas at Arlington electrical engineering professor J.C. Chiao.

"Our pH sensor is a very simple, biocompatible, flexible, inexpensively and easily mass-produced, and has a broad application across many sectors, including agriculture, cosmetics, medical devices and shipping logistics," Chiao said.

"SensTek is now raising capital to demonstrate the viability of the prototypes and the manufacturing process for potential customers."

Existing solutions in the pH market are usually bulky, expensive, high-power and complicated to use, often involving calibration and cleaning.

The SensTek pH sensor is small, low-power and cost-effective for mobile applications, including wearables for biomedical applications or even custom cosmetics.

In the cosmetics sectors, applications are seen to test for changes of skin pH with aging and during adolescence, including potential personalized skincare.
