All C+K systems to measure skin, hair, scalp and nails have been used for more than 35 years in dermatologic basic research. Check out the full range of products.

The Derma Unit SSC3 is the classic compact device with a digital display for Sebumeter® / Corneometer® / Skin-pH-Meter in one housing. Ideal device to support your recommendation of individual suitable skin and hair care products.

Based on the long-term expertise from the scientific field, we have developed special measuring equipment for skin testing to promote cosmetic products or esthetic treatments. The devices vary from small handheld units and flexible battery operated devices to multi-functional cameras and probe systems with convenient and sophisticated software to determine the needs of the skin and to recommend adequate skin care products. Select from a variety of possibilities:

The device determines if a patient suffers from cold contact urticaria (CCU) and at what threshold temperature the symptoms occur. Cold contact urticaria is a form of physical urticaria, in which with contact of the skin with temperatures below skin temperature, symptoms like itching, burning wheals and/or angioedema will occur. The device can also detect heat contact urticaria (reaction to contact with temperatures above skin temperature). Cold contact urticaria, however, is the more frequent type.

22 MHz ultrasound is an interesting tool to measure skin 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.

Dermacheck 3000 offers interesting measurement modules for the use in a salon or a sophisticated aesthetic institute. It combines measurements with probes for different skin parameters as well as camera images of the skin, dermatoscopy and laser/IPL treatment consulting by melanin and erythema measurement.

Occupational Health

Occupational Health

Occupational medicine assesses besides the function of eyes, ears and lungs also the body's biggest organ - the skin. With measurements, they demonstrate to the workers the danger of skin at work and how important skin protection products are.
In the occupational EADV Europrevention campain – Your skin – the most important 2m2 of your life - special device from C+K were used.
  • Corneometer CM 825

    Corneometer® CM 825

    The World's Most Popular Skin Hydration Measurement Instrument

    For more than 35 years the Corneometer® has provided the worldwide most used method to reproducibly and accurately determine the hydration level of the skin surface (stratum corneum). This is documented by the numerous scientific literature in which the terms "corneometry" and skin hydration measurements are inseparable. The accuracy of other hydration measurement instrumentation on the market is always assessed against the standard of the Corneometer®.

  • Mexameter® MX 18

    Mexameter® MX 18

    Assessing Melanin Content and Erythema Level

    The Mexameter® MX 18 is a very easy, quick and economical tool to measure the two components, mainly responsible for the colour of the skin: melanin and haemoglobin (erythema) by reflectance.

    There are many fields of application where changes in the skin colour are of interest. The instrument is worldwide established and used in many scientific studies.

  • Tewameter® TM Hex

    Tewameter® TM Hex

    Ultimate Measurement of Transepidermal Water Loss and Beyond

    The Tewameter® TM Hex (successor of the world-wide popular Tewameter® TM 300) assesses the Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL), indispensable parameter for the evaluation of the water barrier function of the skin, with a revolutionary accuracy and reproducibility.

    30 sensors inside the probe “see” the relative humidity and temperature like a camera. The high amount of data allows the user not only to highly accurately measure inside the probe but can show results also for the areas right outside the probe, namely skin surface and ambience above the probe.

    Thus, new, exciting parameters (e.g. local skin energy balance and others) may give interesting insights in several research fields.

  • Visioscan® VC 20plus

    Visioscan® VC 20plus

    Skin Topography directly from the Skin with 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 images show the structure of the skin and the level of dryness very impressively. The camera can be used on pigmented spots and lesions and on hair. 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 has been used on board of the International Space Station ISS for several years.

  • Corneofix® desquamation collector


    Desquamation Collector Foil

    Corneofix® 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.
