A transparent tubing system filled with RBCs of different concentration is used for modelling the skin microcirculation.

Simulated and measured TiVi-index versus RBC fraction

A linear relationship is

attained between RBC concentration and TiVi output signal.

User Interface

Tissue viability imager tivi600


Small and portable design.

12 images per minute.

2D color presentation.

Video-clip presentation.

Basic data availability.


Non-invasive and remote operation.

Instantaneous image capturing.

Not sensitive to movements or ambient light.

User friendly.

Does not influnce the microcirculation.

Calibration not necessary.

Before application of

methyl nicotinate.

About ten minutes

following application of

methyl nicotinate.

Select regions of interest.

Display the Erythema

intensity versus

time curves.

Analysis of time series

Build a video out

of 100 images.

Select a cross-section.

Display the TiVi values along the cross-section versus time.

Analysis of time series

Apply topically:

0.5 mg/ml clobestal proprionate

(20 microliter).

50 mmol methyl nicotinate (20 microliter).

The average TiVi-values for the erythema, blanching and control area.

Erythema and Blanching

Tissue viability imager tivi600

Step 1. Drug application by iontophoresis.

Step 2. Capture a sequence of images through the ring-shape iontophoresis electrode and watch the result.

Step 3. Display the time-sequence of average TiVi-values.

Step 4. Generate a dose-response curve.

Transcutaneous drug delivery
