In vitro test system

Test system:
human skin model
Source species:
Cell type:
non-transformed keratinocytes
Cell source:
foreskin from multiple donors
unchanged (no vehicle)
Details on test system:
- Ashland 0.5 cm2 reconstructed epidermis from normal human keratinocytes.
- Batch N°: 1710EPID02
- Origin: Foreskin
- Quality Controls: Certified by Ashland Tissue Engineering laboratories, 06/11/2017
- Cells were grown on inert polycarbonate filter on chemically defined medium, airlifted for 17 days
- 3 tissues were used for each chemical.
- The RHE tissues were incubated at 37°C, 5% CO2 until test substance application (usually 24 hours).
Control samples:
yes, concurrent negative control
yes, concurrent positive control
Amount/concentration applied:
Duration of treatment / exposure:
42 minutes
. Fill a 24-well plate with 300μl by well of pre-warmed maintenance culture medium.
· Transfer tissues.
· Dispense 16 μL ± 0.5 μL (or 16 μg) of products and controls on the top of epidermis.
· Carefully apply a nylon mesh (Ø = 7.5mm) on the whole surface with forceps.
· Keep the plates containing the treated epidermis for 42 minutes at room temperature.
Duration of post-treatment incubation (if applicable):
42 hours and MTT incubation for 3 hours.
· Remove the nylon mesh with fine forceps from the epidermal surface of a treated tissue.
· Remove the treated units using forceps, and rinse thoroughly 25 times with 1 ml DPBS.
· Transfer the washed tissue on 2 mL growth culture medium (6-well plate).
· Incubate the treated and rinsed epidermis at 37°C, 5% CO2 for 42 hours (± 60 minutes).
Assessment of non-specific MTT reduction (NSMTT)
· To identify direct MTT reducers, each test chemical should be added to freshly prepared MTT solution. If the MTT mixture containing the test chemical turns blue/purple, the test chemical is presumed to directly reduce MTT and a further functional check on non-viable RhE tissues should be performed.
· Each MTT reducing test chemical is applied on at least two killed tissue replicates which undergo the entire testing procedure to generate a non-specific MTT reduction (NSMTT)
Number of replicates:
3 per group: Negative control, Quaternium-26, Positive control
