Although Skyn is no substitute for a breathalyzer used widely by police, as in this case, the measurement procedure takes up to 45 minutes, the device can be used for longer monitoring the level of alcohol in the blood of a particular person. Ordinary people can use the device to track their aldosterone and share collected information with their doctor.
