In vitro Reconstructed Human Epidermis (RHE)
In vitro 3D 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. The Creative Bioarray Reconstructed Human Epidermis Model (RHE) is very similar to human skin in terms of morphology, of differentiation markers and of functional characteristics.
