A novel textile-based analytical device with a simultaneous, rapid, sensitive and qualitative response for analyte detection that may have a potential use in different body fluids such as sweat, blood, saliva and urine is proposed in this study as an alternative to its paper-based counterparts. A porous polypropylene spunbond nonwoven was used as base fabric which is superior to paper with higher tear and crinkle resistance, flexibility and wearability.
