3D Bioprinted Human Skin
Biology of the Human Skin & Innoskin
3D Bioprinted Human Epidermis that is an alternative to animal models in cosmetic, chemical, agro-chemical and pharmaceutical testing applications.
How is Innoskin HE Made?
Keratinocytes are added to our trade secret biomaterial mix in specific measured proportions to develop the perfect bioink to print human skin. The bioink is then loaded into the extruder for printing
The loaded bioink is bioprinted using our patented 3D Bioprinting technology in meticulously designed scaffold patterns to aid in optimal bioink deposition and uniform cell distribution throughout the scaffold
The printed scaffolds are carefully incubated for specific time periods to allow them to mature into fully formed epidermal tissues. The tissues are developed in our trade secret medias to give them the right nutritional conditions for growth
After complete maturation, the Innoskin® HE tissues would be shipped in customer specified formats for testing applications across industries
Why do we need Innoskin® HE?
Global Ban on Animal Testing
The European Union has completely banned the use of animals for testing cosmetic and chemical formulations
Implementation of this ban has pushed companies operating in these domains to look for more viable, effective and cruelty-free methodologies of testing. The current testing models for these companies are 3D Cultured Human Skin, Pig Skin and 2 dimensional cell cultures
