NativeSkin®, a versatile testing tool

A selection of skin donors

Genoskin is collaborating with different clinics and hospitals through special Biological Sample Transfer Agreements. We collect samples of at least 10 different donors per week.
Depending on their needs and specific requirements, Genoskin customers can select:

Donor gender
Donor age
Donor phototype
Area of surgery
Genoskin human skin samples number and age of donors

Generally, donors for our in vitro human skin models are between 18 and 70 years old. 90% of donors are women. Most of the skin samples collected have phototype 2 or 3 characteristics and are removed from the abdomen. However, should you have specific requirements for your study, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Different formats for different needs

Depending on the required route of administration, customers can choose between two different NativeSkin configurations:

For topical applications, we recommend the NativeSkin models with a silicone ring around the biopsy, i.e. all our skin models, except for NativeSkin Basic. The ring delimits and seals off the working surface during topical applications. As a consequence, the applied compound is prevented from reaching the biological matrix or the culture medium without going through the skin.
The NativeSkin Basic model is adapted for an administration through the culture medium.

Both NativeSkin and NativeSkin Basic are available in different sizes, from 8 to 23 mm of diameter.

Delivered right on time for your study

Genoskin believes in excellent customer service. We’re doing our utmost to deliver the skin models you need on the day of your choice. Our models are produced within 24 hours after surgery, at which point they’re immediately shipped to our customers to guarantee sufficient life span and adequate skin response for the duration of your study. To efficiently deliver our products, we have selected a number of carriers according to the country of destination. Genoskin generally ships between Tuesdays to Fridays.

We have also designed specific packaging to safeguard our NativeSkin testing kits during transportation. It ensures the models reach their destination unharmed. The kit also contains the required amount of culture medium to maintain the models over a period of 7 days.
