Biomechanical & Biomaterial Testing

Scientists and engineers in biomaterials research rely on accurate measurements to make breakthroughs in applied research, technology development, and quality assurance. Chief among the challenges faced in biomaterials research is that many specimens are very small and sensitive – therefore it is extremely difficult to measure their deformation and strain. Digital Image Correlation (DIC) is perfectly suited for tensile tests of micro specimens, measuring 3D displacement and strain and many other material parameters.
