proderm academy will host an exclusive virtual workshop dedicated to the topic of Confocal Raman Microspectroscopy (CRS). CRS is a technology which opens new horizons for anyone engaged in skin-related research. For developers of topically applied products CRS uplifts the benchmark with regard to in vivo skin research especially in the investigation of in vivo penetration. For marketeers CRS enlarges possibilities in claims support. For research professionals CRS may be a diagnostic tool in the first place. The range of possible applications of CRS is diverse and innovative at the same time.
This half day workshop was created to educate industry professionals and academic researchers alike, for whom CRS may be a beneficial technology. Delegates of this interactive workshop will learn about the basic principles of the technology and the information it can provide about the molecular composition of the skin and how it may be used for diagnostic purposes. Special attention will be given to the topics of in vivo skin penetration and permeation of topically applied materials and ’skin hydration‘.
