Strat-M Transdermal Diffusion Membrane

Ethical and regulatory pressures have limited testing of personal care formulations on human or animal skin, which has driven the need for access to alternative models.

Strat-M is a synthetic, non-animal-based model for transdermal diffusion testing that is predictive of diffusion in human skin without lot-to-lot variability.



Organotypic 3D Skin Cultures

We have developed a simple step-by-step culture protocol that can be used to generate human epidermal skin models using primary human keratinocytes (PHK), dermal fibroblasts (primary human fibroblasts, PHF), collagen-coated MilliCell culture inserts and the proprietary 3dGRO Skin Differentiation Medium, which supports the robust differentiation of keratinocytes during the air:liquid interface culture steps.



Immunoassays for Protein Biomarker Analysis

Protein biomarker immunoassays characterize the interactions between a biological system and a potential hazard. Our industry-leading range of single (ELISA), multiplex (MILLIPLEX) and ultra-sensitive (SMC) immunoassays allow direct monitoring of the biological effects of cosmetic products by assessing markers of inflammation, sensitization, aging and tissue regeneration among others.
