Solicator® pro

Fitzpatrick Skin Type Testing

Determine the skin sensitivity to sun in your institute with an instrument of the world market leader for skin testing devices. The exact measurement of melanin in combination with an established standard questionnaire determines safely and quickly the Fitzpatrick skin type for each customer.

The Solicator® pro and its software is a valuable support not only for selecting the appropriate sun screen products but also helps to give a suitable sun bed exposure recommendation.


  • Device

    Melanin armOur melanin probe which is the core of the Solicator® pro is based on the Mexameter® technology.

    This technology is world-wide used in cosmetic industry and dermatological research as a standard tool to measure the melanin content of the skin (pigmentation) as index figures. Several hundreds of published studies on skin pigmentation with our instrument are available.

    Melanin table eThe Solicator® pro determines the complete melanin content of the skin (eu- and pheomelanin). The lower the melanin level of the skin (light skin), the more sensitive it is to UV radiation. Respectively, the time a person can be exposed to UV radiation or the intensity of the UV-radiation (also called MED – minimal erythema dose) needs to be decreased to prevent this person from burning. Dark skin comes with a natural protection and has lower sensitivity to UV exposure.
