"The RiverD Skin Analyzer comes with both a scientific and an ethical benefit: from a scientific point of view it helps us in our daily work to measure important dermatological parameters such as real water in skin or penetration. The ethical perspective is based upon the fact that the measurement can be done in-vivo and non-invasive and with that causing no harm to the volunteer. This makes the system a powerful tool in dermatological studies"
"The partnership between the UCL School of Pharmacy and RiverD dates back more than 10 years. In that time we published the very first paper which used RiverD's unique Skin analyser to investigate the topical delivery of a drug - ibuprofen. To date we have successfully profiled skin delivery of a number of other actives and excipients which are used in the personal care and pharmaceutical sectors. At all times the RiverD team has been supportive, responsive and forward thinking. We are looking forward to the next 10 years of collaboration!"
RiverD offers a unique solution for in vivo analysis of molecular composition of the skin; hardware, software and methodology. All supported by more than 30 years of experience and know-how in Raman technology and tuned to get high sensitivity & specificity at a level of biological tissue and individual cells. The technique and methodology was a true inspiration for my own PhD work and then, years after, while working at Philips Research - a wonderful tool for the in vivo skin research projects of my PhD students.
