Membrane Solvent Penetration Measurements Using Contact Imaging

Contact imaging using silicon fingerprint sensors, originally designed for biometric applications, has shown potential for skin hydration imaging and surface analysis. Previous studies have shown that such sensors are also sensitive to solvents with high dielectric constant values, ॉ, which may make them useful for solvent penetration measurements. This study presents recent investigations on solvent penetration through a silicone membrane and porcine tissue samples using contact imaging.
