ADMET testing systems can be found in laboratories and universities all across the world. Researchers utilize our machines to advance their studies, measuring a wide range of mechanical properties in a variety of materials. This research often leads to interesting conclusions and may have implications for the future of material science. Whether they are testing the strength of new surgical grafts or studying the microscopic properties of porcupine quills, ADMET testing systems offer accurate and reliable performance, day in and day out.
Here are some examples of published work that have used ADMET machines. We’re proud to be a part of the advancement of material science!
Excerpt from the Abstract: A variety of permanent and absorbable tacks are available for mesh fixation during laparoscopic hernia repairs. Although manufacturers recommend deploying tacks perpendicular to the tissue, achieving this can sometimes be challenging. This study aimed to analyze comparatively the effects of angled deployment among commonly used tacks.
Excerpt from the Abstract: As part of an ongoing program to study the thermo-mechanical effects associated with cryopreservation via vitrification (vitreous in Latin means glassy), the current study focuses on the development of a new device for mechanical testing of blood vessels at cryogenic temperatures.
Excerpt from the Abstract: To test absorbable materials as a prelude to development of an absorbable vena cava filter for the prevention of pulmonary embolism (PE).
Excerpt from the Abstract: Ventral hernia repair (VHR) continues to be a challenge for surgeons. Poor long-term durability of the commonly-used human acellular dermal matrix (HADM) grafts often results in VHR failure and reherniation. We hypothesized that fiber-reinforcement will improve the mechanical properties of HADM grafts and maintain these properties after enzymatic degradation.
Excerpt from the Abstract: Paramedian laparotomies lead to incisional hernias in approximately 30% of cases. In contrast, incisional hernias occur very rarely in the linea alba or the ventral abdominal wall. In this setting we investigated the difference between scar tissue and the non-incised abdominal wall tissue.
Excerpt from the Abstract: In recent years the natural fiber epoxy composite has attracted substantial importance as a potential structural material. The natural fiber composites can be very cost effective material. In the present investigation the development of a Fly ash-Bagasse fiber composite material has been discussed.
- Microstructured barbs on the North American porcupine quill enable easy tissue penetration and difficult removal
Excerpt from the Abstract: North American porcupines are well known for their specialized hairs, or quills that feature microscopic backward-facing deployable barbs that are used in self-defense. Herein we show that the natural quill’s geometry enables easy penetration and high tissue adhesion where the barbs specifically contribute to adhesion and unexpectedly, dramatically reduce the force required to penetrate tissue.
Excerpt from the Abstract: An in situ optical microscopy fatigue testing is proposed in this paper to investigate the forward and reversed plastic zone size under cyclic loadings for Al-7075-T6. This experimental study is used to verify the hypotheses in a recently developed small time scale formulation of fatigue crack growth.
Excerpt from the Abstract: During removal of current medical tapes, crack propagation occurs at the adhesive –skin interface, which is also the interface responsible for device fixation. By designing quick-release medical tape to undergo crack propagation between the backing and adhesive layers, we decouple removal and device fixation, enabling dual functionality.
