Iontophoresis

Iontophoresis is a technique that can be used to transport drugs in ionic form across intact skin. Depending on the chosen drug, this may or may not affect the local blood perfusion. The technique is based on the principle that an electric potential will cause ions in solution to migrate according to their electrical charges.

The PeriIont Micro Pharmacology System is an iontophoresis system that can deliver minute volumes of drugs non-invasively in a controlled fashion. Together with the laser Doppler or the laser Speckle (LASCA) technique, the vascular responses to the drug can be studied while it is being delivered. The PeriIont Micro Pharmacology System is a useful system for studying endothelial dysfuction, and it is available for the PeriFlux System 5000 and the PeriCam PSI System.

The PeriFlux System 5000 is not available within the EU and the EEA.

PeriIont Micropharmacology System

The PeriIont Micropharmacology System is a versatile accessory to study microcirculatory responses to non-invasively delivered drugs. The system is offered as a complete kit with everything you need to start the measurements.

Endothelial Dysfunction

Iontophoresis is an excellent method to study the endothelium and assess the subject's endothelium dependent and endothelium independent vasodilation.

Improving quality of life since 1981

Perimed AB, established in 1981, provides instruments, software and expertise to enable assessment of the microcirculation. We utilize laser Doppler, laser speckle (LASCA) and transcutaneous oxygen (tcpO2 or TCOM), to accurately monitor and quantify blood perfusion and tissue oxygenation in real-time. Our modular PeriFlux System 5000 and PeriFlux 6000, the latest generation of our PeriFlux System, are excellent choices for diagnosing Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) and Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI) or for assessing wound healing potential in your vascular patients. Our blood perfusion imager PeriCam PSI System allows you to investigate spatial distribution, for example during cortical spreading depression.
