ImaBiotech provides precise information about drug penetration in the skin substructures, as well as supportive information about efficacy and potential toxicity!

The better understanding of drug penetration and effects through the various layers of the skin may play a key role in the drug development process especially for pharmaceutical, cosmetic and dermatological products. In this context, ImaBiotech provides useful and precise information about exogenous compounds’targeting the skin substructures (at the micrometer scale), their amount (using quantitative MSI), their impact on endogenous molecules of the skin tissue (small endogenous metabolites, lipids, peptides or proteins) and their potential adverse effects (inflammatory or toxicity response).
