Wound Care Application Note
Wounds, whether acute or chronic, involve a complex healing process that can be disrupted by various factors. This process can cause severe complications and significantly impact a patient’s quality of life. Therefore, understanding and tracking wound healing progression becomes paramount in wound care management.
Measuring Tissue Stiffness
In response to this challenge, our nanoindentors offer a unique solution. They empower researchers to measure the mechanical properties of tissues, providing valuable data that can serve as mechanical biomarkers for the healing process.
We provide application notes that delve into practical cases where researchers have utilized our nanoindentors in wound care research. Importantly, these notes highlight how these tools can accurately measure the stiffness of tissues and cells. This information is crucial because changes in tissue stiffness can indicate the progression or stagnation of the healing process. Furthermore, the applications of our nanoindentors extend beyond wound care research. They find use in a variety of other fields, including materials science and engineering, where understanding the mechanical properties of materials is essential.
