From the paper:
"To develop a modification of the stripping method allowing quick automated processing of corneocyte samples to study human skin conditions... a D-squame skin indicator is used to divide the collected corneocytes into a lesser populated sample, in which more individual corneocytes can be observed with the help of fluorescent microscopy after dye staining... The method described is suitable for the automated data processing."
