Caption: Human skin culture. Gloved fingers hold a petri- dish containing a biopsy sample of human skin which is to be used as tissue culture. Artificial skin tissue cultures are made from a small piece of human skin (such as this biopsy sample). The outer epidermis is separated from the dermis layer underneath and epidermal cells (such as keratinocytes) are used to "seed" new growth. Synthetic skin's uses include treatment of severe burns, and in the testing of drugs & cosmetics. Photographed at the Edouard Herriot Hospital, Lyon, France.
