Biological materials range from soft and highly compliant nature of cells and gels to hard interface coatings on stents and implants. The wide range of hardness and sample environments present a challenge for mechanical testing.
The new TI-750D Ubi platform is a dedicated nanomechanical platform for biological investigations and includes:
- Low force transducers - standard
- Insitu SPM imaging and wear testing - standard
- New NanoDMAIII with CMX - standard
- Operation in liquid environments - standard
The TI750D allows the user to accurately and qantitatively characterise the nanoscale dynamic, quasi-static, and tribological properties of all classes of material. Hysitron's nanoDMAIII with CMX and reference frequency control algorithms provides a powerful means of characterising mechanical properties as a function of depth into the materials surface, viscoelastic properties as a function of frequency and drift-free creep measurements.
With extensive options such as Modulus Mapping, 500µm Z stage and sample heating the TI-750D can meet the challenges of modern research.
