SkinEthic RHE / Human Epidermis
SkinEthicTM RHE / Reconstructed Human Epidermis
SkinEthicTM RHE is an in vitro reconstructed human epidermis from normal human keratinocytes cultured on an inert polycarbonate filter at the air-liquid interface, in a chemically defined medium. This model exists at different stages of maturity.
This model is histologically similar to in vivo human epidermis.
