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 results.
BioTester – planar biaxial testing
MicroTester – micro-scale mechanical testing
UniVert – tension, compression and bending testing
UStretch – precision tension testing
Mechanical bioreactors provide insights into the response of cells and tissues to mechanical stimulation. In addition to our standard products, CellScale also has extensive experience in developing custom solutions.
MCJ1 – 6 specimen tension stimulation
MCTX – 6 specimen compression stimulation
MCTR – 9 specimen hydrostatic stimulation
MCFX – 16 well uniaxial stimulation with microscopy
MCB1 – biaxial stimulation
MCT6 – 6 specimen uniaxial stimulation
VitroFlo is a microphysiological system that provides unidirectional controlled flow without the need for pumps, tubes or valves. The VitroFlo consists of a wellplate with 12 microfluidic flow loops and a programmable rocker.
The system is now available for beta testing. Click here for more information.
I purchased the Cell Scale biaxial device in my first year as an Assistant Professor. It allowed my first graduate student to start collecting data from day one rather than spend the time to design, build, and validate a custom device first.
I have used CellScale both in the classroom and research setting. It was a great tool for teaching undergraduates the principles of mechanical testing with a hands-on, experiential approach. In my laboratory, it enabled us to determine the mechanical properties of a soft biomaterial developed in our lab that could not be measured by other means. It met all our needs, and was easy to use.
