Skin Tissue Model Kits

Skin tissue modeling just got a whole lot easier!

Successfully bioprinting skin tissue models requires overcoming two challenges: 1) producing physiologically functional tissue and 2) comprehensively analyzing that tissue with specific antibodies. With CELLINK’s Skin Tissue Model Kits, surmounting the former is possible with the use of bioinks explicitly developed to support the maturation and proliferation of cells that produce the thick dermis layer and those that create the stratified epidermis. The latter is dealt with by deliberately optimizing antibodies that express cell phenotypes in the created skin models.

Skin Tissue Model Kit

CELLINK’s Skin Tissue Model Kit gives you everything you need to generate skin tissue models, from bioinks for bioprinting tissues to antibodies for targeted analysis. The kit’s bioinks are designed to mimic the dermal and epidermal layers of the skin.

Skin Tissue Model Kit - With Cells

Combines CELLINK’s bioinks with Lonza’s primary cells and culture media, for an all-encompassing solution for enhanced bioprinting of complex 3D skin tissue constructs. Easily harness the power of bioprinting and automation to produce consistent and high quality skin constructs.
