To bio-engineer denovoSkin™, a small biopsy of healthy skin is harvested from the patient.
The biopsy is processed to isolate epidermal and dermal cells. The cells are expanded in vitro, and thereafter used in combination with a hydrogel to create a dermo-epidermal skin graft. denovoSkin™ is now ready to be transplanted on the patient’s wounds. The safety trials for denovoSkin™ have been completed. The efficacy trials are supported by Wyss Zurich.
