Basic Probes Systems – MPA, MDD, Wireless

Create your own measurement device exactly according to your needs

The C+K probe devices are modular and can be put together according to your needs. They consists of a basic device and the probes. Choose a basic device meeting your requirements: with display, only connectable to software or even wireless to transmit the measurement values directly into software. Select the measurement parameters you need for your work. Together, the basic device and the probes will form your individual measurement center.

The C+K Probe Family

The C+K probes are digital and contain all calibration information. Thus they can be simply connected to a basic unit. A variety of probes are available to measure different parameters on the skin:Corneometer hand

The probes provide a high degree of flexibility and stability and can be easily serviced.
With a check calibration function the accuracy of the probes can be verified any time. The result of the check can be saved and printed for your documentation.
New probe developments are constantly in the pipeline.

The Multi Probe Adapter (MPA) Systems

The Multi Probe Adapter Systems can feature up to 10 different probes at the same time and are connected directly to the software (no display on the device).

  • Measurement system exactly suitable for your needs and can be enlarged as you go along.
  • The MPA systems are operated with the new, sophisticated software MPA CTplus.
  • The data from the ambient condition sensor RHT are saved with the measurements.
  • All future C+K probes will be compatible with this system.

Available models:

  • Multi Probe Adapter MPA 6: inbuilt Sebumeter® and possibility of connecting any probes (up to 5, except Cutometer®) with external power supply
  • Multi Probe Adapter MPA 10: inbuilt Sebumeter® and possibility of connecting any probes (up to 9, except Cutometer®) with external power supply
  • Cutometer® dual MPA 580: Measurement of the skin's viscoelasticity by suction created by a vacuum pump inside the device. The Cutometer® features a built-in Sebumeter® and the possibility to connect up to 4 additional C+K-probes. The device is delivered with one Cutometer® probe (2 mm standard Ø opening), accessories and software. Optionally, a second additional Cutometer® probe can be connected and worked simultaneously.
  • MPA 2: connect any two probes (except Frictiometer or Cutometer®), no additional power supply needed, just connect it to the PC via USB

Stand-Alone Solutions (MDD 4 - Multi Display Devices)

  • The MDD device features a large, illuminated colour display for showing results in figures and curves
  • It comes with one specific probe and the Ambient Condition Sensor
  • Up to two additional probes can also be connected to the system
  • Operation with sophisticated software MPA CTplus optional

Wireless Probes

Almost all C+K probes are also available as wireless, battery operated probes, sending the measurement data via radio directly into the MPAWirelesssoftware MPA Wireless. The small receiver unit RR 200 is connected to the computer via USB. The values can be transmitted from a distance of 5-10 m. The wireless probes are supported by the new MPA WLplus software, which offers all the advantages of MPA CTplus adapted to these probe variants.

The following probes are available as wireless: Corneometer® CM 825, Mexameter® MX 18, Tewameter® TM 300, Skin-Thermo-Meter ST 500, Skin Glossymeter GL 200Skin-Colorimeter CL 400, Skin-pH-Meter® pH 905

Unique Accessory - Ambient Condition Sensor RHT 400

MPACTplus ambient conditionsAs measurements on the living skin depend very much on the environmental conditions (especially temperature and relative humidity), scientists try to hold these parameters as constant as possible. We offer a special external sensor for ambient condition monitoring (temperature and RH). When working with the software, the room condition measurement values are automatically transmitted into the software and are saved with each measurement. This is indispensable for subsequent evaluation and comparison of reproducible measurement data. The latest generation, the RHT 400, also displays the current air pressure in the software, an interesting parameter when measuring under extreme conditions (e.g. high altitude). When measuring with the Tewameter® TM Hex, for example, the TEWL is adapted to the air pressure values.
