Caption: Skin culture storage. View of stacks of petri dishes each containing a layer of artificial human epidermis tissue, stored in an incubator. Human skin is made of a tough outer coating, the epidermis, and an inner layer of connective tissue, the dermis. Skin can be cultured by "seeding" epidermal cells onto a small sample of human dermis tissue. Epidermal tissue is stored like this prior to it's use in skin grafting operations. Uses for artificial skin include the treatment of severe burns, and in the testing of drugs & cosmetics. Photographed at the Edouard Herriot Hospital, Lyon, France.
