Basic Probes Systems – MPA, MDD, Wireless

Multi Probe Adapter MPA 10

Create your own measurement device exactly according to your needs

The C+K probe devices are modular and can be put together according to your needs. They consists of a basic device and the probes. Choose a basic device meeting your requirements: with display, only connectable to software or even wireless to transmit the measurement values directly into software. Select the measurement parameters you need for your work. Together, the basic device and the probes will form your individual measurement center.

  • The C+K Probe Family

    The C+K probes are digital and contain all calibration information. Thus they can be simply connected to a basic unit. A variety of probes are available to measure different parameters on the skin:Corneometer hand

    The probes provide a high degree of flexibility and stability and can be easily serviced.
    With a check calibration function the accuracy of the probes can be verified any time. The result of the check can be saved and printed for your documentation.
    New probe developments are constantly in the pipeline.
  • The Multi Probe Adapter (MPA) Systems

    The Multi Probe Adapter Systems can feature up to 10 different probes at the same time and are connected directly to the software (no display on the device).

    • Measurement system exactly suitable for your needs and can be enlarged as you go along.
    • The MPA system is operated with an overall C+K software.
    • The data from the ambient condition sensor RHT 100 are saved with the measurements.
    • All future C+K probes will be compatible with this system.

    Available models:

    • Multi Probe Adapter MPA 6: inbuilt Sebumeter® and possibility of connecting any probes (up to 5, except Cutometer®) with external power supply, operation with the C+K "MPA software"
    • Multi Probe Adapter MPA 10: inbuilt Sebumeter® and possibility of connecting any probes (up to 9, except Cutometer®) with external power supply, operation with the C+K "MPA software"
    • Cutometer® dual MPA 580: Measurement of the skin's viscoelasticity by suction created by a vacuum pump inside the device. The Cutometer® features a built-in Sebumeter® and the possibility to connect up to 4 additional C+K-probes. The device is delivered with one Cutometer® probe (2 mm standard Ø opening), accessories and software. Optionally, a second additional Cutometer® probe can be connected. You can work with both probes simultaneously in the software Cutometer® dual.
    • MPA 2: connect any two probes (except Frictiometer or Cutometer®), no additional power supply needed, just connect it to the PC via USB, operation with the C+K "MPA software"

  • Stand-Alone Solutions (MDD 4 - Multi Display Devices)

    • The MDD device features a large, illuminated colour display for showing results in figures and curves
    • It comes with one specific probe and the Ambient Condition Sensor
    • Up to two additional probes can also be connected to the system
    • Operation with C+K "MPA software" only optional

  • Wireless Probes

    Almost all C+K probes are also available as wireless, battery operated probes, sending the measurement data via radio directly into a special MPA software. The small receiver unit RR 200 is connected to the computer via USB. The values can be transmitted from a distance of 5-10 m. The following probes are available as wireless:

    Corneometer® CM 825, Mexameter® MX 18, Tewameter® TM 300, Skin-Thermo-Meter ST 500, Skin Glossymeter GL 200Skin-Colorimeter CL 400, Skin-pH-Meter® pH 905

  • MPA-Software

    • An user-friendly software operates all probes at once. Only the Cutometer® requires a software of its own.
    • Measuring values can be displayed as bars, curves or numerical data
    • Standard deviation and average values of the measurements are calculated
    • All data are saved in one database and can be filtered by probe (e.g. all Mexameter® data), by person (all data of a certain volunteer), by date or time period and by a key (e.g. certain study or product) and of course as any combination of these factors (e.g. all data for Mexameter® and Corneometer® of one person for the study x). This makes it easy to collect data from different sessions of a study.
    • The data can be exported to spreadsheets (Microsoft Excel®) for further evaluation.
    • Check calibration can be performed and a report on the accuracy can be printed and filed.

    Make your own software for the MPA device and your probes

    We can provide easy to use protocols for the communication between your probes on the MPA and the computer so that you can make software for your individual application. Please ask for details.

  • Unique Accessory - Ambient Condition Sensor RHT 100

    Ambient sensor with valuesAs measurements on the living skin depend very much on the environmental conditions (especially temperature and relative humidity), scientists try to hold these parameters as constant as possible. We offer a special external sensor for ambient condition monitoring (temperature and RH). When working with the software, the room condition measurement values are automatically transmitted into the software and are saved with each measurement. This is indispensable for subsequent evaluation and comparison of reproducible measurement data.
