Measuring and Modeling Contractile Drying in Human Stratum Corneum

Article doi: 10.3791/55336
March 1st, 2017

Summary March 1st, 2017

This article describes a method of quantifying the dynamic drying behavior and mechanical properties of stratum corneum by measuring spatially resolved in-plane drying displacements of circular tissue samples adhered to an elastomer substrate. This technique can be used to measure how different chemical treatments alter drying and tissue mechanical properties.
