In vitro Non-animal Testing using the Reconstructed Human Epidermis Model

In vitro skin irritation and corrosion testing is a growing field, due in large part to restrictions on animal testing for cosmetics and personal care products in many countries around the world. Our partners at MatTek have produced an infographic to illustrate the use of their reconstructed human epidermis model, EpiDerm™, in product safety testing. MatTek’s EpiDerm™ is accepted by most regulatory authorities for non-animal in vitro testing of skin irritation and skin corrosion under the OECD test guidelines 439 and 431, respectively. Cyprotex has used the EpiDermTM tissue for many years for in vitro skin testing and we are pleased to have this opportunity to share their information.
