Sebufix® SF 16

Tape to monitor sebum production

Sebum Collector Foil

The Sebufix® F 16 is a special foil absorbing the sebum of the skin surface due to its micro pores and showing them as spots in different sizes. When mounted on the Visioscan® camera, the qualitative sebum production can uniquely be monitored in real time.


  • Advantages of the Sebufix®

    • In addition to well established quantitative sebum measurements, the approach of the Sebufix® is more qualitative.
    • The foils come in a convenient dispenser box and are easy to take out.
    • The very quick measurement without any glue has no occlusion effects on the skin thereby avoiding incorrect results.
    • The measurement is not influenced by the hydration level of the skin (sweating).
    • The Sebufix® F 16 is a perfect addition to the Visioscan® skin camera. Visioscan foreheadThe sebum production can be monitored in real time on the screen.
    • With the software the number, size and area covered with spots (mm2) can be evaluated for 5 different sizes of spots (very small to large). In addition, the software displays the slope of the sebum development during the measurement time as a value.
    • Also with the Skin-Visiometer® software the foils can be assessed.
    • A number of studies has been performed with this interesting foil.
