Abstract

The Pins Lab has developed a tissue engineered skin system to address the problem of non-healing skin wounds. The goal of this project was to redesign the device in which the grafts are cultured and to improve the image analysis of these grafts. Our redesigned device greatly reduced the handling time, and potentially reduced the risk of graft contamination. Our improved image analysis system allows for consistent, semi-automated analysis of histological sections of the skin grafts grown in Pins Lab.
