  • Assessing Nail Properties

Assessing the nail properties in vivo is gaining more and more focus in assessing efficacy of nail care and nail cosmetics. New, innovative measurement systems allow exploring a whole new world of claims.
Nail StrainStress Meter NM 100

Nail StrainStress Meter NM 100

Characterize the Biomechanical Properties of the Nail

For the first time objective, highly accurate measurements on the nail are possible. In collaboration with Prof. Paola Perugini from the University of Pavia in Italy we have developed a patented device to analyse mechanical properties of nails, such as firmness, elasticity and thickness.

Tewameter® TM Nano

Tewameter® TM Nano

Ultra-Small TEWL Measurement Probe for Special Skin Sites
With its exceptional small measuring chamber (only 2 mm Ø), the Tewameter® TM Nano allows to measure the Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL) in g/h/m² on small, or difficult to reach sites, e.g. nails, scalp with hair, lips, etc.
Skin-Colorimeter Flex CL 440

Skin-Colorimeter Flex CL 440

A Flexible Way to Look at Skin & Nail Colour and More
The Skin-Colorimeter Flex CL 440 is a new generation of colour measurements on skin, hair and other material in the CIE L*a*b* colour space. With two interchangeable measuring tips and new placement aid feature, even small areas like nails can be precisely captured.
Skin-Glossymeter GL 200

Skin-Glossymeter GL 200

Measuring Gloss on Skin, Lips, Hair and Nails
The measurement of gloss is an important parameter to evaluate nail care and decorative nail cosmetics.
Visioscan® VC 20plus

Visioscan® VC 20plus

Skin Topography Directly Measured with the Multi-Talent

The Visioscan® VC 20plus is a unique UVA-light video camera with high resolution to study the skin surface directly. The SELS® parameters (Surface Evaluation of the Living Skin) have been developed especially for this camera and are used in numerous studies. The camera can be used on skin, hair and nails. With its multi-functional software, the Visioscan® VC 20plus is a very flexible system to characterize skin surface condition easily, accurately and very economically. It had been used on board of the International Space Station ISS for several years.

Corneofix®  - nail


Desquamation Collector Foil

Corneofix® is a special adhesive tape collecting corneocytes (flakes of dead cells). The number, size and thickness of the flakes indicate the quality of the nail. When mounted on the Visioscan® camera, desquamation can be evaluated by its software.

Skin-pH-Meter on hand and nails

Skin-pH-Meter PH 900

Measuring pH-value on Hand and Nails
Measuring the pH-value on the nail plays an important role in efficacy testing of different formulations of nail cosmetic and - care. To evaluate the general state and health of hand and nails the Skin-pH-Meter is used.
Ultrascan UC 22

Ultrascan UC 22

Look into the skin with 22 MHz

22 MHz ultrasound is an interesting tool to measure skin and nail thickness and density in vivo with plenty of different applications. The Ultrascan UC 22 is OEM made especially for C+K and our customers to complete the product range of skin testing parameters with an extremely economic, easy to handle and absolutely accurate ultrasound device for cosmetic research.
