Ex vivo and in vitro tissue models are continuing to emerge and grow as powerful scientific tools that can provide valuable insight into the function and behavior of complex biological systems. Highly customizable models can give companies the insight needed to develop and perfect antimicrobial formulations, implantable devices, and wound dressings. This is a beneficial tool in helping companies screen appropriate projects and helping healthcare practitioners to confidently make choices around products that are likely to be effective within clinical settings.
Tissue models can be used to study inflammation and biocompatibility, antimicrobial efficacy, and reepithelization. These techniques can aid in the production of a truly physiologically relevant skin construct for preclinical innovation.
Attendees of this webinar can expect to walk away with a better understanding of the following:
- The benefits and applications of in vitro and ex vivo models
- When to consider tissue models as an option
- Case Studies: proven solutions to demonstrate product efficacy or safety
Join NAMSA for this webinar as we discuss the latest advances in these models, how they can be applied to different therapeutic areas, and the customized support for your preclinical research.
