Skin Optical Characterization Devices

Skin optical characterization device is a generic term for devices which can determine the skin melanin index for an individual’s skin. Below are links to patents for such devices which make the idea of the measuring of melanin index for Egyptian mummies a non-invasive procedure.

The existence such devices means the examination of the melanin index can be subject to quantifiable measure and no reason exists to prevent such an examination. The opponents of Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop’s Melanin Dosage Test argue against it because of the need to consume the sample taken, thereby potentially damaging the artifact being examined.
