To facilitate the study of vaginal-ectocervical (VEC) toxicity, pathologies, and basic mucosal phenomena, MatTek has developed the EpiVaginal series of tissue models. EpiVaginal tissues are based on normal, human-derived VEC epithelial and dendritic cells (DC). All VEC tissues are cultured on specially prepared cell culture inserts and are multilayered and highly differentiated. The tissues closely parallel native human tissues, thus providing a useful in vitro means to assess toxicity, sexually transmitted infections, and other basic vaginal phenomena.
