Piuma Nanoindenter Technology

Using a patented technology developed by research scientists of the VU University Amsterdam, we have developed a revolutionary device: the Piuma Nanoindenter. The Piuma Nanoindenter is able to perform nanoindentation measurements of soft biomaterials, bringing the nano- and micromechanical properties of for example native and engineered tissues to light.
