The MoistureMeterSC measures the capacitance of the layered structure composed of the probe, stratum corneum and the underlying skin layers. The measured capacitance is directly proportional to the water content of stratum corneum. The measurement frequency is 1,25 MHz.
The MoistureMeterSC measures the hydration of the stratum corneum only. The effective measurement depth depends on the thickness of the dry layer and is thus individual.
Wipe the cover of the MoistureMeterSC with a soft cloth and a mild detergent solution. Clean the measurement probe with an antiseptic cleansing towel or ethanol and dry after cleaning. Never place the device in contact with water or any other liquid.
