Labskin (Innovenn Ltd.), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Integumen plc., (AIM:SKIN) today announces that it has entered into a partnership with RinoLab to provide Labskin clients with access to an AI machine learning platform which accelerates development of cosmetics, skincare, woundcare, personal hygiene and pharmaceutical topical drug delivery products, and does not require animal testing. The service is expected to go live in Q4, 2018.
Clinical Validation Service
Labskin has also entered into a partnership agreement with AIM quoted Venn Life Sciences Holdings plc (“Venn”) to integrate clinical validation protocols into Labskin AI. This will provide certified “Clinically Tested”product claim services to brand owners and producers of most skin care products. – see related party transaction below.
Artificially Intelligent Labskin Service
Labskin AI is an AI-based laboratory-grown human-skin testing platform. It uses clinical trial test protocols and datasets, eliminating the need for animal testing completely for the development of all skin care products. The AI platform and physical Labskin laboratories offer clients an online end to end skin care product validation system, tested on laboratory-grown human skin.
Labskin is Expanding
Due to the recent increase in demand for Labskin services, additional laboratory development support services are being provided through an agreement signed with Sheffield Hallam University, UK.
Gerard Brandon (CEO of Integumen plc and Director of Innovenn Ltd) commented:
“We are delighted to announce this collaboration of technologies and work with the skills and expertise of the RinoLab Team on the Labskin AI platform. Partnering with Venn Life Sciences and their clinical research organisation raises the bar for manufacturers of skin care products in quality control for consumer product information file (PIF) verification. Sheffield Hallam University has worked with Innovenn for many years in multiple Labskin development projects and extends the reach of our development services for our clients. Labskin has successfully moved from selling Labskin equipment supplies to being a fully fledged service provider during H2 2018, increasing our orders by 350% over H1. I believe that Labskin AI is now the ultimate go-to-market service for skin care product development, comprising formulation efficacy, testing and certification for EU and US consumer product launches.”
Tony Richardson (CEO Venn Life Sciences Holdings plc) commented:
“This is an exciting development and extends our pharmaceutical clinical validation approach to the consumer health, personal and skin care industries in a way that has never been done before. We see multiple opportunities for cross selling of services to the same clients of both Venn and Labskin, not least the new services of topical drug delivery and drug metabolism through the skin. By partnering with Labskin and RinoLab using the AI platform we look forward to being able to offer a unique certification service to Labskin clients, as well as extend AI machine learning data analysis across our CRO service to pharmaceutical clients, helping them reduce their overall development costs by getting their products to the market faster.”
Fin Murray (CEO of RinoCloud Ltd – RinoLab) commented:
“The RinoLab Team have developed a range of algorithms for the dissimination of big data specifically from scientific sources and is perfectly suited to analysing Labskin data to unlock trends and patterns that would normally be missed on a manual review. Using RinoLab, Labskin AI clients are provided with suggested alterations to improve product formulations to increase efficiency and efficacy. RinoLab analysis provides supporting data for the “Product Information File” required by cosmetic brand and skin care companies, prior to product launches in the US and EU markets.
