Monasterium Laboratory's 3D in vitro models mimic some of the complex interactions within the skin and hair follicle and represent more complex cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions than the 2D co-culture model. The 3D models are composed of cells from our Human Cell Lines or Human Primary Cell range or can be custom built to order. Specific ethnicities and/or diseases can be chosen for the 3D models to screen new compounds or lead candidates identified from our established cell and 2D model screens. This analysis represents a more cost-effective approach to compound screening in ex vivo models and we suggest this service is used where more than two compounds are being tested to keep costs down. Lead-candidates from these studies can be further assessed in our ex vivo organ culture models.
