Lipbarvis® - A non-invasive look at the skin

Microscopy Services Dähnhardt uses the patented analysis method Lipbarvis® (Lipid Barrier Visualization, LBV) to investigate the epidermal skin barrier directly without invasive sampling.

We take skin samples in the range of three to five cell layers by using a particularly gentle adhesive/carrier system. These are then available for a variety of analyses.
