The Skimune® platform (Skimune®Cosm; Skimune® Chem; Skimune® Mab) are unique non-artificial human in vitro skin tests

The Skimune® platform predicts hypersensitivity responses to pharmaceuticals including small molecule pharmaceuticals and monoclonal antibodies) chemicals and cosmetics

Skimune® provides a pre-clinical predictive readout of skin damage which correlates with screening assays; cytokine release syndrome ( CRS) and T cell proliferation responses

Skimune® Mab is the only commercially available test for predicting adverse reactions to monoclonal antibodies, biobetters, biosimilar and antibody drug conjugates

The Skimune® platform tests are used in dose response and efficacy studies for immunomodulatory drugs prior to Phase One clinical trials
