Ten Bio’s innovative human skin model advances preclinical testing to new levels by providing the most physiologically relevant system for use in a wide range of applications.

TenSkinTM, maintains skin’s inherent viability and ability to response to external stimuli through a next-generation culture technology which maintains the tissue under an optimum mechanical tension mimicking the in vivo environment.

Full thickness human skin

TenSkinTM incorporates normal full-thickness human abdominal skin including complete dermal and epidermal layers and features a normal barrier function provided by an intact stratum corneum.

The presence of minor skin cell populations such as immune and pigment cells together with normal appendages such as hair follicles and sweat glands offers researchers a valuable tool to bridge the link between ex vivo and in vivo studies.

Economical and ethical research

TenSkinTM is prepared from ethically sourced and fully consented surplus surgical tissue and arrives in a ready-to-use format suitable for topical, diffusion and intradermal applications.

Cultured under mechanical tension, TenSkinTM provides the user with skin that not only behaves like skin on the body, but which also feels realistic and is therefore more appropriate for evaluating skin treatments and helping to avoid the need for testing in animals.
