Habituating pigs for in-pen, non-invasive biophysical skin analysis
The purpose of this study was to develop a method for habituating pigs (Sus scrofa domcstica, middle white strain) to enable non-invasive, biophysical measurements of dorsal skin to be obtained on a daily basis over a ...
Opto-thermal measurement of barrier cream residence time on skin in-vivo
We report the non-invasive opto-thermal measurement of the residence time of a barrier cream on in-vivo skin. These measurements revealed an approximately exponential decrease of cream layer thickness with a 1/e disappearance ...
In vitro skin absorption and decontamination of sulphur mustard : Comparison of human and pig-ear skin
