In our CellScale November newsletter we feature two customer publications that used rat/mouse in research to solve human diseases and understand human skin behavior.
Compressive Mechanical Properties of Rat and Pig Optic Nerve Head
Dr. Ross Ethier and his team from Georgia Institute of Technology delved into glucoma research by understanding the biomechanics of optic nerve head tissue under elevated intraocular pressure mechanical strain. Rat and pig optic nerve head tissue were used in this study and compared with varying compression loading cycles. Read this article.
Regional-Dependent Biaxial Behavior of Young and Aged Mouse Skin
Dr. Manuel Rausch and team from the University of Texas at Austin compared young and aged mouse skin through histology analysis, 2 photon-microscopy observation and planar biaxial testing. Their results work toward predictive computational simulations of skin behavior. Read this article
