Labskin-M

Following a successful KTP collaboration with the Centre of Skin Science at the University of Bradford, Labskin is proud to announce the successful development of Labskin-M. Soon, this will be the first commercially available human skin equivalent with dermis and epidermis that contain melanocytes.

Melanocytes are the cells that give our skin its colour by producing melanin, a pigment that protects our skin from UV radiation (and sunburn). Melanocytes are also able to work as specialist immune cells, secreting cytokines and chemokines that keratinocyte cells don’t. Additionally, melanin is known to act as a sink for pollutants, toxins and medicinal products.
