The MicroBIOS Platform

One of the strongest trends in skin care is undoubtfully the skin microbiota and its positive influence on skin health. In the MicroBIOS Platform, StratiCELL combines skin microbiota components and 3D reconstructed epidermis, to study the efficacy of dermo-cosmetic ingredients on the equilibrium of the microflora, under healthy or dysbacteriosis conditions like eczema, acne, dandruffs, mycosis, etc.

The skin microbiota describes the natural flora that lives on our skin. Its impact and influence of our skin balance have been largely described. This is why new skincare products are now evolving to better preserve or enhance this natural ecosystem. Address your testing to skin biology experts like StratiCELL to support your microflora-related dermato-cosmetic claims.

Available strains :

  • Staphylococcus epidermidis
  • Staphylococcus aureus
  • Cutibacterium acnes
  • Corynebacterium spp.
  • Lactobacillus plantarum
  • Malassezia spp.
  • Trychophyton spp.

Design your testing with our experts :

  • Step 1: Chose your microbial strain of interest, for single or co-culture on top of 3D epidermis, under healthy or disordered conditions (atopy, acne)
  • Step 2: Microbial outcomes : growth and viability by colony counting (CFUs) and 16S PCR identification
  • Step 3: Skin barrier and inflammatory response : histology, Gram staining, immunolabelling, western blotting and key epidermal gene expression
