The use of biosensors in intelligent electronics is a hot and popular topic. Various professionals, multidisciplinary, and cross-domain integrations in terms of chemical engineering, electrical engineering, medicine, industrial design, and manufacturers have been developed in recent years. In this chapter, a urine sensing system is introduced. The development of a urine detection device is mainly aimed at the essential indexes of chronic kidney diseases for homecare. Renal failure and complications include acute or chronic urinary tract obstruction, hepatic failure, and nephritic syndrome. At present, more than 2000 people per million worldwide have to rely on hemodialysis. The majority of patients with end stage renal disease have limited mobility, and patients must go to the hospital for diagnosis. Traditional urine detection requires a great deal of duty time prior to a patient obtaining the report. Therefore, this urine sensing system is expected to achieve fast detection and lower cost for patients.
