Monasterium Laboratory has vast experience in the isolation and culture of a wide range of cell populations from healthy and diseased human skin and hair follicles.

In-vitro experiments with primary and established cell line cultures can provide important insights into drug/compound safety, function and activity. The company utilises human skin and hair follicle primary cells for establishing new 3D in-vitro systems to meet the specific requirements of its clients.

Currently available primary human skin cell cultures include:

  • Dermal papilla cells
  • Keratinocytes – hair follicle and skin-derived
  • Epidermal and hair follicle melanocytes
  • Adipocytes
  • Dermal fibroblasts
  • Mast cells and other immune cell types such as T-cells, macrophages
  • Adult human skin stem cells
