Mechanical testing tissue microstructure is becoming an increasingly active area of research, especially in oncology. It has been shown that changes in this microenvironment are key in cancerous growth, namely an increased tissue stiffness. External mechanical forces can directly influence cell signaling regulating and influencing growth. Investigating the mechanical properties of the microenvironment is, therefore, key to creating a biomechanical model of tumor growth.

One of the challenges the bioMMeda lab - focused on biofluid, tissue, and solid mechanics for medical applications - faces is the need for flexible testing equipment that enables a multitude of tests in order to validate model simulations. The testing lab requires testing specimens in unique positions and orientations, in addition to testing at non-ambient temperatures and in fluid baths to simulate conditions in the human body. Learn how they overcame these challenges.

Samyang Biopharm
With an increasing demand from customers and new regulatory requirements that spanned across the globe, Samyang Biopharm needed an automated solution to remove the external factors that no longer suited their needs as a lab. See the changes they made with automation.

University of Ghent

The lab's need was for evaluation testing of key biomedical components for industrial customers, in ways that were as close to real-life usage as possible. Critical to this was making sure that they could meet the industry's needs for dynamic testing in a variety of fields. See the outcome.
