Life science is a broad and rapidly changing field that requires advanced characterization techniques. In the areas of biology, pharmaceuticals, and pathology, new discoveries are made by understanding at the cellular level how tissues/structures behave, why this behavior is present, and how this behavior can be modified. In the areas of medical implants and devices, material deformation behavior, compatibility, and reliability are of critical concern.
Bruker is continually developing new nanomechanical and nanotribological test equipment and techniques to better comprehend yesterday’s problems and advance tomorrow’s technologies. From understanding single cell mechanics and measuring pharmaceutical-induced mechanical property changes to quantifying interfacial adhesion strength of drug eluting coatings and wear characteristics of implants, Bruker has developed test machines to help you to better understand key issues and develop next-generation technologies to solve them.
