Monasterium Laboratory provide state-of-the-art skin and hair research services. We specialise in preclinical product testing, lead optimisation and compound screening using healthy or diseased organ-cultured human skin and hair follicles. We can provide all of the preclinical support required to enable you to achieve your objectives: From screening compound/ingredients in our human assay systems to developing custom-designed assays, proof-of-concept studies or mechanism of action research. Efficacy of candidate drugs, cosmeceuticals and nutraceuticals identified in the preclinical analyses is assessed in our new Clinical Hair Trials Unit. We also undertake translational research programmes, which stem from our expertise in basic hair and skin research, to provide our customers with off-the-shelf products for the hair and skin aesthetic and disease markets.
