CM-SA Skin Analysis Software

CM-SA Skin Analysis Software works in combination with Konica Minolta spectrophotometers to measure the color of skin simultaneously with a numerical display of the Melanin Index, Hemoglobin oxygen saturation (Hb SO2) Index, and Hemoglobin (Hb) Index. Measurements are easy to perform when used with our CM-700D/CM-600D spectrophotometer; simply press a button while applying the instrument lightly to the subject’s skin.

With the increasing demand for measurements in the field of skin research and development, this software is has become extremely useful. For example, when matching cosmetics and measuring sun tanning effects on skin to prevent damage, measurements using CM-SA Skin Analysis Software can be utilized. If highly-accurate readings of melanin pigmentation without it being affected by the skin’s redness is needed, this instrument and software combination is ideal.

Group data easily by examinee by simply presetting the number of measurements that are needed per person. It begins grouping the next set for the following examinee as soon as that number is reached. For further analysis or management using Excel or another spreadsheet program, data can be output in CSV text format.
