Mechanical test systems
At CellScale, our test systems are optimized from the ground up to characterize the mechanical properties of biomaterials. Environmental chambers and imaging are integral system functions, not afterthoughts. For needs ranging from micro-scale compression to biaxial tension, trust CellScale’s systems to provide cutting edge data. Our products are:
BioTester – planar biaxial testing
MicroTester – micro-scale mechanical testing
UniVert – tension, compression and bending testing
UStretch – precision tension testing
CellScale’s bioreactors provide insights into the response of cells and tissues to mechanical stimulation. We have systems optimized for high-throughput, real-time imaging, 3D scaffold use, and multi-modal stimulation. CellScale also has extensive experience in developing custom solutions that exceed expectations. The Cell-Stimulation products are:
MCB1 – biaxial stimulation of cell monolayers and 3D constructs
MCTR – compression stimulation with real-time stiffness measurement
MCFX – uniaxial stimulation of cell monolayers with imaging
MCT6 – high-force uniaxial stimulation of 3D constructs
Our lab regularly uses the MicroSquisher to measure the mechanics of gel microparticles and the tensile properties of gel films that otherwise are very challenging to measure based on the size or low modulus of the samples. Our success in using the instrument is in large part to the outstanding customer support offered by CellScale in training, ongoing support, and their amazingly rapid responses to overcome any technical problems we have.Prof. Todd Hoare
