use our 3 Aquaflux probes in clinical trials which perform
well with reliable data.
Dr. David Black, Skin Research Centre, Pierre Fabre Dermocosmétique,
It is my pleasure to recommend the Aquaflux.
As a device we have found it to be durable, that it is easy
to calibrate and use and measures quickly. The measurements
are highly repeatable with little variation between users.
Biox has provided great service. Before the sale they took
the time and effort to understand our particular needs (measurement
in critically ill premature neonates). The personal training
got us up to speed in short order. Since our purchase, Biox
has engineered a USB solution for our parallel adapter device
that has allowed us to use newer computers with our older Aquaflux.
Our questions have always been answered promptly and completely,
although we have had little need for support.

We have two AquaFlux devices in the laboratory
and they are used by everyone in the group. We find them reliable,
robust and accurate, providing data in which we have full confidence.
Technical support from the manufacturer is exemplary.

Aquaflux is an easy-to-use device. The
closed chamber allows more relevant and reproducible measurements
of TEWL than other devices. We enjoy very much to use it and
to work with Biox team, always ready to cross Europe to help
Anne Viola, Laboratoire Dermscan, France.
The Aquaflux is an excellent instrument
that has performed robustly even in our three month old baby
study. The BIOX Team is always available to answer questions
down the line, and I can highly recommend it for both clinical
and research use.
Dr Carsten Flohr, National Institute for Health Research, UK.
A versatile instrument, reliable for
many in vivo and in vitro measurements with reproducible data,
easy to manipulate, broader applications in personal care,
pharma, dermatological research. The software is well written,
user friendly, and the manual is easy to read and follow. Well
done to the Biox team!!!!

Time and again our Aquaflux has performed
well in our clinical studies. The ability to see and analyse
the water coming from the skin in real time gives it a distinct
advantage over conventional 'single digit' devices.
Dr Jonathan Crowther, Procter and Gamble, UK.
The Aquaflux is highly pratical for measuring
the TEWL. We are using it in vivo and in vitro. The data are
reproducible and the customer support is excellent.
Prof. Claudia Valenta, University of Vienna, Austria.
New user in 2008 I was very pleased to
have invaluable help and good support from Biox team to use
Aquaflux to its best avantage. Today researchers and technicians
of our lab are agree to say that AquaFlux is a good equipment,
easy to use, with reproducible data.(We use this device in
wound healing studies).

We are getting on quite
well with the AquaFlux indeed! we are exploring with this
equipment the quantification and early detetction of malfunctioning
of sudomotor neurons in patients suffering e.g. diabetic
neuropathy, CRPS, small fibre neuropathy, critical illness
etc and thereby may contribute a new diagnostic clinical

The AquaFlux is a very good device and the staff of Biox is
very competent and nice.
Marc Crozet, Essor Technologies, France.
I'm very happy with the AqaFlux, it's easy to operate the machine
and the manual is very readily comprehensible written.

I have been investigating the biophysical
properties of the skin since the early 70s. Over the years
the technology to probe the nature of the stratum corneum has
advanced significantly and one determinant that is particularly
important is the transepidermal water loss. Various approaches
have been made to accomplish this but my research team finds
that the Aquaflux proves a simple, reliable and robust method
for monitoring TEWL. It does not suffer the vagaries of open
chamber equipment and the various parameters that can be obtained
from the data that the Aquaflux provides give very good indicators
of the water flux through the skin and the capacity of the
skin for water. Its sophistication has allowed us to conduct
a detailed analysis of the variation of TEWL with body site
and relate this to the diffusional pathlength of water through
the stratum corneum. Any laboratory interested in the barrier
properties of the skin should evaluate this technology for
its ease of use and reliability.
Prof Jon Hadgraft, London School of Pharmacy, UK.
In our institute we are using the Aquaflux in an unusual
application to evaluate the water behavior of fabrics and
textiles components. This device gives accurate and reliable
measurements. Its use is very simple and the staff is very

The measuring capacity of the
Aquaflux allows us to use the instrument in exercise
physiology in the evaluation of sweat rates. The instrument
is easy in use, no discomfort for the athletes and real
Professor Peter Clarys, Faculty of Physical Education and Physiotherapy, Vrije
Universiteit Brussel, Belgium.
The AquaFlux is a user friendly
instrument that provides more accurate and reproducible
measurements compared to open chamber TEWL measuring instruments.
Ideal for assessing skin barrier function and water loss
for in-vivo clinical studies.
