Venn Life Sciences (AIM: VENN), a growing Clinical Research Organisation (CRO) providing clinical trial management and resourcing solutions to pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device clients, announces that its innovation division, Innovenn, has commenced production of its pioneering product Labskin at their new state of the art laboratory facilities in the UK.


Labskin, a human skin equivalent, allows high quality skin research to be carried out in the sponsors own facilities. Unlike most skin models, Labskin provides an environment similar to human skin in that it can house microflora.


The commencement of production at these new facilities marks a milestone for Innovenn as they have sought to streamline operations to deal with larger order volumes and a wider geographic distribution. Innovenn have also recently recruited additional technical staff to assist with production and order fulfillment.


Tony Richardson, CEO of Venn Life Sciences commented: “We are delighted to be able to offer our clients one of the most exciting skin research products ahead of schedule from our facilities in York. We will continue to work and build capacity in order to increase our worldwide distribution of Labskin and the provision of associated microbiology services.”
