Mechanobiology of ECM

The extracellular matrix (ECM) provides structural and mechanical support to cells across various tissues. Its mechanical properties, including topography and stiffness, influence cellular behavior and function. Thus, understanding ECM mechanobiology advancements is essential.

Measuring ECM stiffness

Optics11 Life offers a solution for assessing the ECM’s mechanical properties. This technology surpasses traditional methods that rely on indirect measures. It provides researchers with tools to measure the ECM’s mechanical properties, producing data that can serve as mechanical biomarkers for cellular behavior.

We have white papers detailing how researchers use Optics11 Life technology in ECM research. These documents emphasize the technology’s ability to measure the ECM’s stiffness accurately and its impact on organoids. Variations in ECM stiffness influence tissue and organ functionality. Furthermore, Optics11 Life technology applications extend to materials science and engineering, emphasizing the importance of understanding material mechanical properties.
