MAP THE MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF TISSUES OR SINGLE CELLS... IN JUST ONE CLICK!
Combining the powerful Piuma technology with a compact and versatile design results in the development of the Piuma Chiaro (manufactured by Optics 11 in The Netherlands). This nanoindentation module can be placed on any microscope, allowing extremely accurate indentation of the smallest samples or features. Single cell indentation is finally made easy! The system performs especially well in liquids. Just plug in the probe and start indenting!
The Piuma Chiaro uses the same technology and hardware as the stand-alone Piuma Nanoindenter. This means that the two Piuma indentation heads can be interchanged, while keeping all the other hardware and software the same. The Piuma Nanoindenter technology consists of a very sensitive measurement probe, mounted on a coarse and fine stage that enables automatic approach of the sample, and provides extremely accurate indentation. The probe can be moved in X-Y, allowing the creation of a fine grid of Young’s Modulus measurements on a single sample. Combine Piuma Nanoindentation with any type of microscopy!
