Innovative study models to help science move forward

In order to help science move forward in an ethical way, Genoskin uses donated tissue samples of real human skin as a basis for innovative and reliable skin models. Our human skin models and tools provide a better way to efficiently test chemical, pharmaceutical and cosmetic products without resorting to animal testing. The Genoskin product range currently holds the following products for research:


NativeSkin® human skin tissue samples for dermatological studies

NativeSkin® Human Skin Models

The last-line screens prior to clinical evaluation

NativeSkin models contain donated human skin biopsies that are kept alive in a nourishing matrix with dedicated culture medium to enable live human skin response. NativeSkin models are presented in a standardized multi-well testing kit for efficient studies with predictive and reproducible results. The models are available in different formats to meet all your study requirements.

Culture Medium

culture medium

Culture Medium: Human Skin Culture

Keep your human skin biopsies alive to increase predictiveness

Our culture medium is chemically-defined for our skin models. It presents the following characteristics: free of serum and growth factors, free of hydrocortisone, free of phenol red. This should be used following the standard culture conditions (37ºC, 5% CO2, max. humidity).


HypoSkin® skin model with epidermis dermis and hypodermic

HypoSkin® - Skin model for subcutaneous injections

The only model on the market to study subcutaneous administration

To date, HypoSkin is the only human skin model that allows you to study the effects of subcutaneous administration on live human skin. HypoSkin models contain donated human skin biopsies that hold all three layers of human skin: epidermis, dermis and hypodermis. The skin used is kept alive in Genoskin’s patented matrix and culture medium to offer live human skin response.

InflammaSkin® - Human psoriasis skin model

The only ex vivo skin inflammation model with a psoriasis-like phenotype

Genoskin has developed a fully human T cell-driven ex vivo skin inflammation model based on the NativeSkin® explant technology. InflammaSkin® model can be used to assess the efficacy of anti-psoriasis topical drugs and subcutaneously injected biologics. Both prophylactic and therapeutic treatments can be evaluated.
