Painless removal of stratum corneum - analyte extraction

The video shows the drilling and automatic retraction of the cutter. The rotating cutter drills an opening in the skin until a preset electrical impedance is reached. The electrical impedance is set to trigger the cutter retraction on penetrating the stratum corneum (SC) of the skin. Release of interstitital fluid from the microconduit is seen in the video as a clear glistening area around the opening. The procedure is rapid and painless.
