From morphology to roughness,
a fast profiling of corneocytes
collected from volunteers or skin biopsies

Corneocytes are the outermost layer of the skin, composing the stratum corneum, which acts as a protective barrier against external factors such as pollution, UV radiation, and pathogens.



BioMeca® evaluate changes in nano-mechanical properties of native human corneocytes, harvested by tape-stripping from different stratum corneum depths. We use Atomic Force Microscopy microscopy to measure their mechanical properties (tomography) and their surface characteristics (topography and roughness measurement). 

High definition imaging and biomechanics to develop dermocosmetic products aiming to improve skin texture, promote a smoother appearance, and reduce the signs of aging.

Collagen disks

The force of contraction of cells plays an important role in many processes such as healing, aging. Collagen is one of the main constituents of the dermis, forming a network of fibers that gives the skin its rigidity…
