Explore the micro-mechanical properties of cells and soft samples with the Chiaro nanoindenter
The Chiaro is the ideal nanoindentation instrument to explore the micro-mechanical properties of cells, spheroids or other small samples. Therefore, this instrument is purposely built to measure forces on cells and micro-materials while placed on an inverted microscope.
The Chiaro nanoindenter is capable of measuring many mechanical parameters. These include the Young’s Modulus (E), storage (E’) and loss moduli (E”). Moreover, both, static and dynamic indentation can be performed using this instrument, including creep, stress-relaxation and DMA.
What The Chiaro Users Say
"Our data is good, but the machine is excellent!"
Combine With Microscopy
In addition, all Optics11 Life probes are pre-calibrated making them plug-and-play design which streamlines experiments. This ensures fast measurements which is critical for time-sensitive biology-related experiments. Measuring the micro-mechanical properties of biomaterials has never been easier.
