Desquamation Collector Foil
Corneofix® F 20 is a special adhesive tape collecting corneocytes (flakes of dead cells). The number, size and thickness of the corneocytes indicate the desquamation/hydration level of the stratum corneum. When mounted on the Visioscan® camera, the desquamation can be evaluated by its software.
The adhesive side of the Corneofix® is applied to the skin area to be measured for only a very short time. On removing the tape from the skin the corneocytes stick to the tape. Many thick, large corneocytes can only be collected when the skin is dehydrated or even damaged. Moist skin shows small regular flakes.
