Human skin substitute to be sold in Europe

A for research only skin substitute called StrataTest is to be launched  at Eurotex 2009.


The research-only product is expected "to be a compelling alternative for makers of everything from shampoo to mascara and cleaning products who cannot sell products that used animals for certain testing since a March 2009 ban on products that use animals to test for toxicity".


Since March, this genetically engineered skin substitute is available to researchers in the U.S.
