With major breakthroughs in the medical industries, it is becoming an ever more essential to provide accurate test data related to materials capabilities.
With the combination of testing frames, software, grips, fixtures and environmental conditioning provided by Instron®, required results are achieved with efficiency, accuracy and repeatability.
Principle of Operation
Whether your application involves synthetic skin tissue, bones, ligaments, prosthetics, implants or sutures, Instron provides various products for testing to industry standards.
Needles and sutures need to be tested for penetration resistance and how many times they can be used before losing their sharpness. Even when tests are performed on tissues in ambient conditions, it is now required that they also be performed in near-actual conditions. Materials that will coexist internal to the human body must now be tested in saline solutions and at body temperature.
