FrozenSkin Human Skin Samples
HIGH QUALITY HUMAN SKIN SAMPLES FOR ABSORPTION STUDIES
FrozenSkin human skin samples are free from stretch marks, scars, naevi, tattoos, or hairy areas.
The donor serum of each collected sample is tested for absence of HIV-1 and -2, and Hepatitis B and C.
FrozenSkin products are defatted, decontaminated and frozen within 24 hours after surgery at -20°C.

High quality human skin samples at competitive rates
The frozen human skin samples in our FrozenSkin range are high-quality testing tools for percutaneous absorption studies. Frozen human skin samples are an alternative to animal testing and comply with the Guideline 428 of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). For pharmaceutical, chemical and cosmetic companies, as well as academic laboratories, studies using frozen human skin are the most accurate way to determine compound absorption and penetration.
Frozen human skin explants have been shown to be a very useful alternative to animal testing and Reconstructed Human Epidermis (RHE). They are considered as the reference in the area of percutaneous penetration and have been validated by regulatory authorities. According to OECD Guideline 428, we currently suggest our FrozenSkin model for the study of percutaneous absorption.
The freezing process inactivates biotransformation enzymes, which means that the influence of a treatment on skin metabolism cannot be taken into consideration while using frozen human skin.
If skin metabolism is essential to your study, please visit our NativeSkin® product page, which is currently the closest in vitro alternative to in vivo clinical testing on human skin.
