BioSoft™ In-Situ Indenter

Transform Your  Optical Microscope into a Powerful Biomaterials Test System

Hysitron’s BioSoft In-Situ Indenter is the first of its kind instrument for multiscale quantitative mechanical testing of biological materials and soft matter such as hydrogels. The BioSoft synchronizes powerful mechanical and optical characterization techniques to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the mechanics of biomaterials. This portable system integrates to existing upright or inverted optical microscopes to bring bio-mechanical testing capabilities into your laboratory. Incorporating decades of knowledge in soft matter testing, Hysitron’s BioSoft provides a unique combination of force sensitivity and displacement range to deliver quantitative mechanical property measurements on the sub-cellular to tissue levels. Streamlined system operation delivers the results you need quickly, minimizing the need to become an experimental expert and providing an easy portal to make life changing discoveries.
