3-D printed skin tissue will soon be a thing
L'Oréal USA and Organovo Holdings Inc. are a year to 18 months away from creating skin tissue using a 3-D bioprinter. This would follow the brand's existing subsidiary Episkin, which harnesses cells from mammary and abdominal samples to reconstruct human skin. "A long time ago we made this decision to not work on animal models and to work on more predictive models and tissue engineered skin," said Guive Balooch, global vice president of L'Oréal’s Technology Incubator. "This kind of innovation allows us to do that, allows us to test a lot of different molecules and to see the effect in terms of toxicity, safety and even efficacy of the molecules." {WWD}
