There is no physical contact between the measuring device and skin, which allows avoiding perturbations due to physiological movements, for example. The software provides elegant- looking 3-D pictures. The PRIMOSpico® is especially dedicated to the measurement of crow's feet wrinkles, eye bags (puffiness) or lips (volume). view less
Skin Temperature by Infrared Pyrometer Technique Skin Test Institute Infrared Pyrometer measurement (KT15®, Heitronics) allows assessing either the cooling effect or the stimulating effect of a cosmetic formulation. Temperature resolution is very high with ±0.03°C.

The entire scanning procedure takes typically 1 minute or less (per examination site), and can be performed by a technician or physician assistant, so that data can be scientifically analysed at a later date, if required. VivoSight indications for use, for clinical applications requiring ethics approval: VivoSight is a Multi-Beam Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) system indicated for use in the two-dimensional, cross-sectional, real-time imaging of external tissues of the human body. This indicated use allows imaging of tissue microstructure, including skin, to aid trained and competent clinicians in their assessment of a patient’s clinical conditions. view less

It is based on a modified Couette principle with a rapidly rotating outer tube and an inner measuring bob which rotates more slowly. It is the first instrument to combine the required precision for ASTM D7042 and measurement of the viscosity index according to ASTM D2270/ISO 2909 in a compact, lightweight benchtop device. SVM 3000 uses a new, patented measuring principle (EP 0 926 481 A2). view less

It is especially helpful if the sample’s viscosity is too high for filling at room temperature. It automatically cleans the viscometer afterwards, taking advantage of up to four measurements from the same vial to determine the repeatability according to ASTM D7042. Typical applications for the XSample 360H/460H - Heated Sample Handling Units for SVM 3000 are heavy fuel oils, residuals, waxes, fats and greases. view less
