CELLINK SKIN contains fibrinogen to recreate the natural wound-healing environment found in skin tissue. It is optimized for culturing fibroblasts and keratinocytes to fabricate skin constructs. CELLINK SKIN comes with an enhanced thrombin-containing crosslinking solution to develop a composite crosslinking network with unparalleled stability, comprising of fibrin network that mimics the natural skin healing environment and calcium alginate for mechanical stability over longer cell culturing periods.

CELLINK SKIN contains low levels of endotoxins that allows creation of healthy and diseased tissue models with minimal interference with drugs during drug development and delivery research.

CELLINK SKIN contains Nanofibrillated Cellulose, jointly patented by UPM-Kymmene Corporation and CELLINK AB. The nanosized fibrils make the bioink semi-translucent which allows cell imaging and analysis.
