hareTek and FlexBio partnered to develop an absorbent patch that can detect the presence of alcohol in sweat. This wearable pairs with software in a smartphone interface to provide real time monitoring and aid with addiction monitoring and recovery. This wearable is designed to be a platform technology that adapts to other chemical sensors, specifically opioids and other narcotics, in future projects.

The sensor has been prototyped and is now being used in human subject testing.
