Facilities and Equipment


With about 1000 square meters, you will find our spacious facilities optimized for the performance of dermatological studies and clinical trials.

Our eight climate rooms and the comfortable waiting area are under continuous temperature and humidity control, which ensures testing under standardized conditions and provides reliable test results. In addition, you will find three functional rooms for special in vivo studies and for in vitro tolerance and efficacy tests.


Diverse state-of-the-art bioengineering and cell culture instruments and equipment provide the platform for an efficient and objective data evaluation for your safety assessment and your product claim substantiation.
