Mobile Data Collector DC 3000


An Interesting Approach to Collect Efficacy Data of Products in the Real Consumer Environment


An interesting, extremely cost effective approach for efficacy testing and claim support is this small, easy to handle, low weight, battery operated  device featuring the worldwide acknowledged Corneometer® CM 825 to measure skin hydration for use as a „home test" to be sent to the volunteers. Hydration tests with the Corneometer® are standard in efficacy tests of the cosmetic industry.

  • What can the device do?

    The Mobile Data Collector comes in a small suitcase and can easily be sent all over the world together with the testing products and a manual for using the device, which will contribute to the geographic  of recruiting volunteers. It has a digital display and an interface for the computer. In addition the ambient condition sensor RHT 100 is connected to the instrument, recording temperature and relative humidity for each measurement. The device can be programmed with the number of the volunteer. It can save over 3000 measuring values together with time, date, R.H. and temperature internally or on a chip card.  The measurements can be executed by the volunteer him/herself several times a day over several days following a specially designed schedule at any place (e.g. at home, work, leisure etc.) as it is easy to use and carry around.

    After the study is finished, the device is sent back to the laboratory. The values are read out with a simple software, which allows a database to be created which can be further processed by spreadsheet analysis e.g. in Excel®. The measuring values can also be sent from the volunteer to the laboratory during the study via the Internet on a regular basis by just connecting the device to a computer using USB. The saved measuring data cannot be manipulated by either the volunteer or the laboratory.


    At the moment it can be delivered as a hydration measurement device. Other measurement parameters such as sebum or pigmentation/erythema measurement can be added to the system on request.

  • Advantages of the Mobile Data Collector

    • Enables collection of important information on the efficacy of the products in everyday use.
    • Field studies with frequent regular measurements exert a certain control of the volunteers. They will be more careful and disciplined in acting according to the protocol and in applying the product knowing that the skin measurement values are recorded more regularly. They feel as though they are being supervised.
    • Regional restrictions can be overcome. Volunteers from all different climate conditions or ethical groups can be included in a test. This is a new approach since until now volunteers are mainly recruited from the area around the test facility.
    • It is a perfect complementary addition to the classical standard laboratory tests.
    • The Mobile Data Collector DC 3000 provides very interesting new convincing marketing arguments for the product promotion
  • Fields of Application

    Perfect tool to support claims and efficacy testing of skin care products.
