Systemic administration

Hi-tech ex vivo human skin models to predict in vivo human skin response

Genoskin’s reputation is based on the quality of the human skin models we provide. Our models use real human skin that is donated with the informed consent of the patient and kept alive for 5 to 7 days. This approach allows us to obtain real human skin response to your product and to study the effects of repeated application. All our ex vivo skin models are ready-to-use and standardized for highly reliable data during the preclinical testing phase of your product.
