Aims:
This task investigated the rate and extent of bone loss in humans by monitoring the levels of two bone resorption markers in sweat, namely calcium and a collagen breakdown product, using a novel, micro-fabricated fluid collection capillary array, known as the micro-fabricated sweat patch (MSP) device. This device was developed specifically for use in microgravity.

Several different sweat collection techniques were investigated to determine the most appropriate and efficient means of sample collection suitable for deployment during a space flight mission.
