1-day Skin Characterisation Workshop - San Diego, April 30, 2018

On 30th April, our distributor in North America, STE, Inc. will host a 1-day Skin Characterisation Workshop in San Diego California, to provide expert presentations and hands-on experience of five sophisticated skin characterisation instruments, as follows:-

The Wheelsbridge Tissue Viability Imager TiVi700 can see beneath the top layer of the skin or other tissues, to provide information about the underlying microcirculation and other tissue parameters. Presented by Prof Gert Nilsson.
The Biox Epsilon Model E100 is a contact imaging system with a linear and calibrated response for characterising near-surface properties of skin, hair and other soft materials. Use it to measure hydration, insensible perspiration, skin micro-relief, etc, in-vivo or in-vitro. Presented by Prof Bob Imhof.
The Pixience C-Cube Clinical is a colour-calibrated ultra-high definition 2D and 3D imaging system for diverse skin measurements, including colour in Lab* co-ordinates, melanin & hemoglobin, dryness, sebum content and skin structures such as wrinkles, pores and micro-relief. Presented by Romain Vie.
The Biox AquaFlux Model AF200 is the top-performing instrument for skin barrier characterisation by the TEWL method. Accurate calibration ensures that measurements are consistent from instrument to instrument and from time to time. Immunity from artefacts associated with probe angle, contact pressure and hand-heat ensures that measurements are consistent from operator to operator. Quick-interchange measurement caps adapt the instrument to diverse tasks in-vivo, ex-vivo, in-vitro and in-culture. Presented by Prof Bob Imhof.
The Taberna Pro Medicum DUB SkinScanner High Frequency Ultrasound System produces high-resolution scan images of the epidermis, dermis, and subdermal structures for precise assessment of skin thickness and density. Presented by George Kramer.

2. Optional stand-alone software licence for image analysis without a connected instrument.
3. Improved ε-Filter functionality with user-defined filter presets.
4. Improved Group Analysis feature for automated analysis of all snapshot images in a user-defined folder.
5. Improved video controls with fast-forward/fast-backward, speed-up/slow-down & real-time playback options.
6. Frame selection in Burst and Video modes by clicking on corresponding time-series graph.

June 2017:- COMET 2017, Cergy Pontoise, France

Pixience and Biox are sharing exhibition booth 19 at this conference. In addition, Romain Vie of Pixience will present a talk on:-

The C-Cube camera: 3D reconstruction using photometric stereo.

and Bob Imhof will present a poster on:-

Stratum Corneum Hydration Measurement using Capacitance Contact Imaging.

January 2017:- New Epsilon Software Version 2_4

The latest Version 2_4 of the Epsilon software is here. Apart from numerous tweaks and bug-fixes, it adds the following new functionality:-

1. A Group Analysis Interface has been added to perform analyses automatically on all snapshot images in a selected folder. It can be accessed via the key combination <Shift><Ctrl>A.

2. New RoI configuration settings have been added for the Reference Panel in all analysis modes. The RoIs in the two image panels may now be set independently (as before), copied from one to the other, or content-matched with the Analysis Panel RoI.

3. Displayed histograms now use a logarithmic vertical axis for Npix [%] to better display the very wide range of values (0.001% to 100%) encountered in practice.

4. A calibration status message has been added to the status bar. Its aim is to remind users that, for best performance, the instrument should be factory recalibrated annually.

5. The colours used for image background, RoI and filtered-out pixels have been optimised for greater clarity. New controls have also been added to the Colour Selector panel for fine-tuning to user-preference.

6. Filtered-out pixels are now displayed more clearly in the associated histograms by greying out with the same two shades of grey as used in the images themselves.
