CellSystems Biotechnologie Vertrieb GmbH (Troisdorf, Germany) and ATERA SAS (Villeneuve-Loubet, France) announce a close collaboration for the commercialization of the epiCS® human skin models, including human epidermis, tanned epidermis and full thickness skin. Both companies will work together to boost the sales of the epiCS® skin models and related products as well as testing applications by co-marketing cross sectorial.
CellSystems has successfully validated the epiCS® human epidermis model for skin corrosion testing (OECD Test Guideline 431) and skin irritation testing (ECVAM-EURL ESAC Opinion June 24, 2016). Additional validation studies are currently ongoing in skin sensitization.
In addition, in the near future ATERA envisions transferring 3 other human tissue models, currently in R&D, to CellSystems production facilities for large-scale production and distribution. CellSystems has a 15-year history of successful mass production of its epiCS® human tissue models and currently sells its products in Europe, US and Asia.
CellSystems and ATERA are tissue-engineering companies specialized in the development, validation, manufacturing and commercialization of advanced human tissue models as reliable, cost-effective, high-quality and more conscientious alternative for animal experimentation in product evaluation, industrial safety and efficacy as well as medical research.
