Single parameter measurement

The DermaLab USB single parameter units present a breakdown of the most popular parameters in our DermaLab Combo series into individual modules - based on the same technology and using the same probes.

With the introduction of the DermaLab single parameter units we proudly present the 3. generation of the widely recognised and popular DermaLab Series.

In addition to the well known parameters for measuring TEWL, elasticity and hydration, this generation also features 20 MHz high resolution skin ultrasound imaging as well as a subcutaneous ultrasound probe capable of visualising layers and structures to a depth of 50 mm.

The software is LabView based and will work with one or more modules running on Windows PC´s or tablets.

Subcutaneous ultrasound

The DermaLab subcutane ultrasound unit is taking the DermaLab Series ultrasound technology one step further. This dedicated scanner visualises tissues in the subcutaneous space to a depth of 50 mm in order to assess the effects of fat reduction procedures in the abdominal area as well as on the thighs.

Good resolution, high penetration and ease of operation are the keywords describing this device, which comes as a complete package including main unit, probe and application software ready to be installed on a Windows PC or tablet.
