Pavone Environmental Control Module Technical Note v.TN_ENV_2023.1

Welcome to the future of research with Pavone’s Environmental Control Module. In the world of biomedical research, the environment in which living cultures and biomaterials are studied plays a pivotal role. Any slight change in temperature, humidity, or gas composition can drastically impact their viability. Enter the Pavone system – a groundbreaking solution that ensures the most accurate results by maintaining near-physiological conditions during biological and soft material measurements.

Key Features

  • Automated Mechanical Characterization: The Pavone system seamlessly combines automated mechanical characterization with top-notch environmental control.
  • Reproduces Near-Physiological Conditions: With controls for temperature, humidity, and CO2, the Pavone system mimics the conditions of a natural environment, ensuring the reliability and relevance of your research outcomes.

The Pavone system has transformed our research methodology. The precision it offers is unparalleled.” – Dr. Koen Reesink, Maastricht University Medical Center

In-depth Research & Findings

Our dedicated team has conducted extensive research to validate the efficacy of Pavone’s Environmental Control Module system.


  • Comparable cell proliferation and apoptosis results between the Pavone system and standard incubators.
  • Consistent and stable pH measurements, ensuring the reliability of your experiments.


We extend our gratitude to Dr. Koen Reesink and Prof. Leon Schurgers‘s research groups, especially to Pepijn Saraber, for their invaluable assistance in conducting experiments at Maastricht University Medical Center. Our work has been generously supported by Public Private Partnership Allowance, Health-Holland, Top-Sector Life Sciences, Health, Association of Collaborating Health Foundations (SGF), and ZonMW.
