Wound Healing

Wound Healing

A better understanding of the wound healing process leads to generating better products that aid in healing hard-to-heal wounds such as chronic wounds. Cell migration during the wound healing process is an important step of a complete healing. In vivo, the wound healing process includes different cell types (macrophages, fibroblasts, and keratinocytes) coming in and out of the wound bed at different time points. Mimicking the in vivo milieu with an in vitro 3D model will assist wound healing scientists to better understand the wound healing or re-epithelialization process and aid companies in generating better products of helping with hard-to-heal acute wounds and chronic wounds.

Creative Bioarray provides in vitro 3D skin tissue models and evaluation assays to support cosmetic or dermatological industries in generating products of helping with wound healing or re-epithelialization.
