Labskin doubles in size to attract multi-national companies to the region


Leading skincare testing company Labskin UK has embarked on a large expansion plan here at York Biotech Campus, which will see it launch a dedicated research and training lab, attracting multi-national cosmetic and healthcare companies to the region.

The company based onsite creates artificial human-like skin that can be used to test skincare and healthcare products in a real-world environment.

Labskin, which has been based at York Biotech Campus since 2014, has grown exponentially and is now doubling its lab space from 1,457 sqft to 2,943 sqft to meet demand. The expansion includes a complete new fit out of two of the laboratories, as well as alterations and improvements to a further three laboratories.

The expansion will enable Labskin to meet current demand in the market by allowing them to increase the amount of sample testing that can be done on site....
