The skin – the largest human organ

The human skin can be analyzed in various medical research areas.
Here, hyperspectral imaging in combination with the chemometric data analysis can provide important information, which cannot be detected with the human eye.
This, for example, is the case with product tests and the question of the influence of cosmetics, pharmaceutic cremes or sunscreen products, which can change the skin surface. Furthermore, the chemical balance of the skin surface can effect allergic reactions or skin diseases.
With the fast and non-invasive principle of the TIVITA® Tissue, new possibilities in the area of dermatology will be created in the future.
