Optics11 Life introduces innovative mechanical analysis instruments for the life sciences field. At this year’s conferences, we present our new instrument Pavone, designed to enable a quantitative, semi-automated high throughput analysis of the mechanical properties of any soft and/or living material, such as cells, (engineered) tissues or particles. The Pavone integrates high-throughput mechanical analysis with automated microscopy, while providing full incubation capabilities and up to 96-well plate compatibility. An easy-to-use the touchscreen-based interface allows you to set up large automated experiments, reducing time spent at the instrument and maximizing throughput. 

If you would like to explore our indentation instruments, please visit our booth at one of the conferences.

We look forward to meeting you and feel free to bring your sample and try out our instruments yourself!
