The two-day seminar of the SGS proderm Academy

When developing raw materials and topical end products, it is crucial that studies are conducted directly on the living skin of humans. Without advanced in vivo methods, reliable and trustworthy statements on skin tolerance and efficacy are often impossible to achieve.

The Academy of SGS proderm has invited international experts to give a comprehensive overview of selected methods and technologies that are focusing on in-vivo skin testing and enable the generation of meaningful results in the context of dermatological studies.

The seminar ‘Advances in Skin Evaluation, Measurement Techniques and Claims’, which will take place from 29.2.-1.3.2024 in Hamburg, combines theory with practice. All methods will first be presented in a lecture aimed at conveying basic know-how as well as special characteristics. Afterwards, the technologies will be presented live with hands on, so that the participants of the seminar can directly gain
application experience.

When selecting the methods to be presented, we attached great importance to corresponding to the versatility of dermatological methods,” says Stephan Bielfeldt, Course Director of the seminar.
In this respect, the seminar program takes into account long-established and frequently used procedures as well as innovative premium approaches.

The topics at a glance:

  • Standard instruments (capacitance, skin elasticity, skin pH)
  • In Vivo Confocal Raman Spectroscopy
  • Transepidermal Waterloss
  • Photographic Techniques
  • Line-field Confocal Optical Coherence Tomography
  • Skin Profilometry
  • Alternative in vivo Sun Protection Measurement (HDRS)
  • Image Evaluation and Analysis

Both days of the event will start with a keynote lecture on the science of skin. For this, SGS proderm could win two well-known scientists and experts in dermatological research: Prof. Ehrhardt Proksch (Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel) and Prof. Martina Meinke (Charité, Berlin). In addition, the faculty consists of expert representatives of the different dermatological device manufacturers and scientists from SGS proderm.
