3D Co-Culture: Full Thickness Skin Models
Traditional methods for preparation of full-thickness skin models depended in the use of collagen I gels for the establishment of the dermal compartment.
This significantly increases complexity, cost and variability.
Using our novel high-ECM culture media, it is now possible to establish full thickness skin models without the use of collagen gels.
The entire dermal matrix is secreted by the fibroblasts, creating a fully natural and complex mix of ECM proteins.
This approch is simpler, faster, and more reproducible. For more details, please visit the features page.
This model was recently featured at the TEDD 3R conference. Please click here to view the conference report.
Features of CnT-Prime Airlift Medium (#CnT-PR-FTAL)
CnT-Prime Airlift is also available in a 500 mL pack size: #CnT-PR-FTAL5
Primary keratinocytes and fibroblasts that have been tested for the establishment of FT models are also available as a separate Value Pack.
