R. MARKS Biology has develop into a 'numbers game'. some great benefits of having the ability to grade adjustments in tissue, post effects to statistical research and effectively checklist organic phenomena make dimension crucial. this is often as actual for a number of the disciplines in utilized biology because it is for the extra esoteric elements ofthe topic. unfortunately, sk in biologists till lately had no longer seized the possibilities that the provision in their tissue of curiosity afforded and fell in the back of within the exploration of size recommendations. most likely this led to half from the flawed sentiment that 'to see is to know'. It additionally originated from the complexity ofthe dermis which. as a heavily interwoven mix oftissue varieties. makes exams technically tough. even though, we're confident in regards to the destiny. The overseas Society for Bioengineering and the surface was once shaped in Cardiff in ] uly 1979 in accordance with the needs of the delegates who had attended the 1st foreign Symposium at the topic in Miami in 1976 and the second one in Cardiff three years later. This quantity is the complaints of the Cardiff assembly. We think that it demonstrates the courageous efforts and diversity of recent principles that characterise the stories of scientists who realize the significance of mixing the actual sciences with pores and skin biology.

One fixed, the other attached to a carrier which is free to slide in a slot in the body of the apparatus. The separation of the tabs is gauged by a miniature L VDT transducer. Output from this is fed to an ultraviolet recorder. The tabs are stuck to the skin surface with double-sided adhesive tape; the skin is then stretched by driving the tabs apart either manually or by means of the extensometer described above. The tabs are then released to obtain the recoil characteristic. 4 shows the effect on the recoil characteristic of holding the skin stretched for varying times.

TORGALKAR SUMMARY A cantilever-mode transducer was designed to determine the energy absorbed in stratum corneum. The measurements were made in a frequency range of 700-800 Hz. The softness of stratum corneum was measured in terms of loss tangent (tan c5), a dimensionless num ber. An acoustic spectrometer was used to determine the resonance frequency, and the results obtained were recorded on an X - Y recorder. The vertical displacement of the arm of the transducer was controlled by attaching a ring weight to the horizontal portion ofthe arm.
