Applications of Nanoindentation in Biology and Medicine
Anton Paar in Peseux, Switzerland
This work summarizes recent measurements with the new Bioindenter device in the field of soft biological tissues and biomaterials. First, the bioindentation technique is briefly described with its specificities and the main requirements on the instrumentation. In the second part, the main applications of this novel technique using the Bioindenter nanoindentation system are presented. These represent an overview of measurements on cartilage, cornea, hydrogels and regenerating tissue.
