Nordic Bioscience can quantify the different layers of the skin
The skin is the largest organ of the human body, and consists of three different layers; epidermis, dermis and subcutis. These three layers have distinct tissue architectures and functions.
Skin functions are dependent on a complex composition of extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins. The ECM of the skin can be divided into the epidermal ECM, epidermal basement membrane and the papillary/reticular ECM. The major ECM components of the skin are collagens, which are located in the different tissue compartments to maintain tissue architecture.
The Nordic ProteinFingerPrint Technology™ allows for the quantification of the different layers of the skin, and also the quantification of immune cell activity involved in different pathologies (Mast Cells, Neutrophils, and macrophages).
