Acne is a common skin condition where comedones (blackheads and whiteheads), papules, pustules (pus-filled spots), nodules and cysts affect the face, neck, back, and chest. Acne is thought to be caused by sebaceous glands being sensitive to hormonal changes that usually occur at puberty but can start at any age. Tissue Solutions can support your research by collecting and processing lesional or non-lesional punch biopsies from fully consented acne donors to suit your project specifications. Tissue Solutions punch biopsy samples include the epidermis, dermis, and superficial subcutaneous fat layers which are suitable cosmetic or pharmaceutical research and primary cell isolations. Fresh samples are shipped in the recommended medium on the same day of collection. Please contact us to discuss your project requirements or request a quote today.
