In-vitro developed ‘human skin’ may curtail animal testing

As part of its aim to help completely eradicate animal testing by offering an alternative solution, Denova Sciences, in collaboration with Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University, has created an in-vitro skin model.

According to Reuters, the skin is the size of a thumbnail and was created from skin cells and collagen from donors. It is said to have the same biological and chemical properties as human skin.

Scientists manufacture the skin in just two minutes by using a printing machine to put in precisely patterned layers that mimic human skin, thus negating the need for testing cosmetic and skincare products on animals.
