Monasterium Laboratory has vast experience in the isolation and culture of a wide range of cell populations from healthy and diseased human skin and hair follicles.
In-vitro experiments with primary and established cell line cultures can provide important insights into drug/compound safety, function and activity. The company utilises human skin and hair follicle primary cells for establishing new 3D in-vitro systems to meet the specific requirements of its clients.
Currently available primary human skin cell cultures include:
- Dermal papilla cells
- Keratinocytes – hair follicle and skin-derived
- Epidermal and hair follicle melanocytes
- Dermal fibroblasts
- Mast cells and other immune cell types such as T-cells, macrophages
