Tissue Engineering & Mechanobiology Mechanical Testing Solutions
Tissue engineering applies the principles of biology and engineering to the development of functional substitutes for damaged tissue. Mechanobiology provides insights into tissue physiology, disease development and relevant therapeutic strategies by understanding how mechanical forces induce changes at the molecular, cellular and tissue levels. These two fields focus heavily on how physical forces and changes in the mechanical properties of cells and tissues contribute to development, cell differentiation, physiology, and disease. Thus, mechanical testing is an integral part of advancements in these emerging fields.
ADMET testing systems are trusted by leading medical device manufacturers, universities, and research laboratories to determine the mechanical properties and endurance limits of medical devices, biomaterials, tissues, and tissue-engineered products. Our systems designed for tissue engineering and mechanobiology applications incorporate mechanical testing solutions that mimic the physiological conditions of the specimen. In addition, ADMET has become a world leader in miniature test systems that sit atop a microscope stage and fit inside perfusion bioreactors. These sophisticated miniature test systems help tissue engineers and cell biologists perform high resolution investigations in mechanobiology.
