NHEK, hyaluronic acid synthesis / release (basal)NHEK-0066
Hyaluronic acid, a sulfate-free glycosaminoglycan, is one of the major components of the extracellular matrix. Hyaluronic acid fills the inter-cellular spaces in skin. It plays an important role in maintaining skin hydration and turgescence, due to its capacity to capture water molecules and ions.
The purpose of this in vitro assay is to evaluate, via an ELISA test, the stimulating effects of compounds (molecules, active ingredients, extracts, etc.) on hyaluronic acid production (synthesis and release) by normal human epidermal keratinocytes.

Price: our pricing system consists of a fixed price per study + pricing per unit (price per replicate or experimental condition)
Start of assays and turnaround time: the start of an assay is subject to the receipt of your agreement and of the compounds to be tested. The sending date of the study report is communicated by email when the study starts. Although of an average of 5 to 10 weeks, our turnaround time may be subject to some fluctuation (due to availability of biological samples, to workload, etc.).
Required quantity of compounds: the required quantity is generally of a few mg or ml but may vary according to the form and solubility of compounds and to the concentrations to be tested. Please contact us for an estimation.
Customized protocols: for this assay, as for all of our assays, we can develop a protocol adapted to your needs. Should you have any question, please contact us.
Validation: the assays listed in the catalogue have undergone a preliminary validation and are subject to Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and to validation criteria. However, the robustness of each assay may be different according to the models and to the analytical methods. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
Report and experimental data: our services include the writing of a study report in English or in French. This scientific report is provided in a PDF or Microsoft® Office format.
Laboratory / Location: this assay (as all of our assays) will be carried out in our Gençay laboratory in France.
