CTIBIOTECH has strong partners in dermatology having developed key assays and technologies to evaluate skin cell responsiveness.
- skin related drugs
- macro cosmetics production
- components testing
- comparison of different ages of skin
- assessment of skin layers
- test of skin from different areas of the human body
- ultraviolet and wavelength effects
- babyskin models
- skin material analysis
Production of skin-related cells and models for drug and cosmetics testing:
We produce from primary skin biopsies, specific models in the micro and macro scales to test components.
We also produce individual cell lines upon demand to specification.
Keratinocytes growing from primary biopsy
We have in our biobank and through our core partners access to skin samples from age 0 through to 95 years old.
Child Skin analysis – Keratin
Production of 3-dimensional skin constructs:
CTIBIOTECH is able to create:
- totally artificial layered skin-derived cell models
- integrated primary-biopsy skin with specified cells and components
Harmonized neural-skin interface assays:
CTIBIOTECH has created tests to specifically analyse the neural-skin interface to model the effects of wound, burns, loss of feeling, reduction and regrowth of neural cells.
Production of Sebocyte and gland models:
CTIBIOTECH is rare in being able to create and grow human sebocyte models.
Sebocyte 3D model
In 2015 CTIBIOTECH successfully expanded it’s skin range to hair models. From individual follicles to bed-growth with complete bulb and glands.
