Imaging Needs for Personalized Skin Care: An industry report

Imaging devices such as MRI’s, radiography and ultrasound are medical devices regularly used to help make diagnostics. What types of devices are used to analyze the skin and the face on a dermatological and esthetic point of view? Are there imaging systems to not only view skin lesions but also wrinkles, skin redness, acne and pores as well as vascular conditions? Are there non-invasive, easy to use camera systems? We have researched such systems and studied if they are used in research laboratories and clinics, available to customers in cosmetics points of sale or destined to consumers’ households. After making an inventory of latest devices we were able to segment the market and compare the systems according to the number of applications they present. Most systems are dermatoscopes, handheld, lighted magnifiers with a non polarized and polarized light source. The software is where they mostly differentiate themselves. Some can analyze your skin down to your fine lines, wrinkles, pores and sebum secretion while others concentrate on skin lesions, spots on the skin. What is the ideal imaging system and what are consumers today looking for?

2D+ : Innovation in Cell Culturing Technology: 

This innovative 2D+ technology enables major improvements in culturing cells to increase assay reproducibility and reliability while improving the capacity to achieve a more physiological phenotype in cells cultured on 2D surfaces without resorting to a 3D culture system. Since each micro pattern is identical (hundreds per well), cells perform in a reproducible and consistent manner decreasing the use of primary cells and permitting less replicates per data point.
