Visual Analysis Made Easy...
The new XPRT software for Windows 98/2000/XP makes collecting data with
the DPM 9003 more efficient than ever. A user-friendly interface combined with real-time
data collection makes it easy to compile databases of information about
products. Use the data to create charts and graphs making information
By graphing and recording readings through continuous measurement, XPRT provides more
information than a static reading, displaying the rate of change of
skin hydration along with the change. This method of testing is more sensitive
as it can detect differences in a product's performance
that do not show up in the static method of testing.
XPRT utilizes two graphs to display the DPM measurement and the rate of
change in real-time data collection. The Summary and Analysis sections
instantly presents sampling information as it is collected.
The DPM unit and slope graphs visually display multiple samples with an option to use
various colors to differentiate among the samples taken. This makes the resulting visual
presentation clearer and easier for comparison. The
graph scales, logging rate, and sampling time may be adjusted anytime
whether it is before or after a sample session is conducted.
XPRT eliminates the time and potential
error involved in manual data collection by immediately recording results
taken directly from the DPM 9003 instrument. A status bar prompts when
the DPM 9003 is ready to use, as it samples, and whenever sampling is finished.
An analysis section on the main window displays the final readings of
a sample. These readings include DPM units, rise time, slope, and peak
slope. Data are automatically saved in a log file, which is converted
into an Excel spreadsheet with appropriately labeled columns.
Benefits and Applications
When using XPRT, researchers can
collect data in less time than with other methods. Low
sampling times reduce clinical costs and are important tools for researchers
in various end-use applications such as personal care, wound healing,
neonatology, and geriatric research.
