How to use

The AGE Scanner works with a dedicated mobile app on your mobile phone or tablet to measure the glycation level of your client and optionally determine his/her biological age. The AGE Scanner has a single button for both establishing the connection with your mobile device and for starting the glycation measurement. After the measurement the AGE Scanner automatically sends the measurement result to the app for display and further assessment.

Non-invasive skin technology

The AGE Scanner operates using innovative optical sensor technology for non-invasive detection of the amount of natural fluorescence originating from advanced glycation end-products in skin tissue. The technology uses low power LED light sources and photodiode detectors to safely and reliably measure this level of glycation.

Key Features

  • Triple measurement mode ensures an accurate glycation measurement by reducing natural variation in skin fluorescence
  • The optical scan of the skin takes 12 seconds in single mode and 30 seconds in triple mode
  • Supports all skin phototypes, including most people with Fitzpatrick skin types V (dark brown) and VI (black).

The AGE Scanner is a wellness device and is not a regulated medical grade device. More information about the validation of the technology can be found here.

Why measure glycation?

Advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) are damaging molecules that accumulate depending on the diet and on the body’s uptake of sugars and rates of formation and excretion of glycation end-products. High levels of glycation are associated with poor diet, poor metabolic health, accelerated aging of organs, loss of mobility, among others.

The importance of measuring and managing glycation is highlighted here.
