Skin Punch Biopsies

BioreclamationIVT has an approved protocol to collect skin punches from donors with skin conditions such as psoriasis and atopic dermatitis, as well as from normal control donors.   Specimens from donors with skin conditions can be collected as a matched set, where we obtain a lesional and non-lesional specimen from the same donor.   As always, these specimens can be processed and shipped according to your preferences, and donor inclusion / exclusion criteria can be specified.
