Sebufix® F 16

Sebum Collector Foil

Sebufix auf Visoscan Quadrat

The Sebufix® F16 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. The foil is applied to the skin and the sebum will become visible as transparent spots in various sizes after only a few seconds. The lateral spread of sebum in the foil is minimized. Skin with low sebum content shows a few small spots, whereas oily skin is visualized by a great number of large spots.
