in vivo skin analysis


gen2-SCA

The gen2-SCA is a highly sensitive confocal Raman system for in vivo skin analysis.

  • Determine molecular concentration profiles from the skin surface into the dermis, in seconds to minutes, with high spatial resolution. 
  • Obtain information about the concentration and distribution of amino acids, sweat constituents, lipids, proteins, water, and topically applied materials.
  • Study penetration and transdermal delivery of topically applied materials.

Examples of applications are:

  • Water concentration profiles from skin surface to dermis in minutes 
  • Determination of Natural Moisturizing Factor concentration in the stratum corneum
  • Studies of the penetration of topically applied materials
  • Optimization of formulations for actives delivery

Instrumentation

The gen2-SCA has been custom-designed for rapid, non-invasive data collection from the skin, including the skin of the scalp and the axilla.

Data are analyzed in real-time. The instrument control software RiverICon calculates and shows molecular concentration profiles during data collection. SkinTools-software is available for comprehensive off-line data-analysis

The gen2-SCA uses red and near-infrared laser light and complies with international standards for safe laser light exposure of the skin.
