ADMET has recently helped one biomedical company meet its materials testing needs when the business sought to track the flexibility of its instruments. Karl Storz is a developer of meter-long endoscope tubing, which are devices used to study the inside of the human body. The company was in need of a testing machine that could conduct compression bend analysis and measure deflection rates on their endoscope tubing.
The business considered creating its own materials testing machine, but later found that the solutions ADMET provides are more cost-effective and timely. In the end, Karl Storz purchased the eXpert 5601 1kN single column universal testing machine along with the eP2 Digital Controller and GaugeSafe Live Data Exchange Program.
In order to perform their compression bend tests, Karl Storz required a special bend fixture. ADMET engineers worked with Karl Storz on the design and provided it with the test system.
To ensure an efficient process for learning how to utilize the testing machine, an ADMET engineer arrived on-site to install the system and train the users. Once operational, the information provided by the eXpert 5601 tester allowed Karl Storz to gain greater control of their manufacturing process which helped them optimize their production line.

Those in the biomedical sector can also benefit from our BioTense Bioreactor, which enables researchers to study cellular responses to physical forces. The system offers tissue engineers and scientists a way to conduct high-resolution investigation within mechanobiology. The bioreactor is fashioned on top of an XYZ stage of a microscope and administers uniaxial forces up to 7 Newtons.
In addition to the BioTense Bioreactor, ADMET supplies environmental chambers and fluid baths for researchers who wish to see how their biomaterials react in situ.
