Optics11 Down Under!

This May Optics11 installed a full Chiaro Nanoindenter instrument on a fluorescence confocal microscope in Sydney! The Chiaro will be used to elucidate phenomena involved in mechanotransduction in single cells, as well as characterizing the micromechanical properties of cells, tissues and materials that relate to mechanobiology & biomechanics.

The Chiaro Nanoindenter is acquired by the Cardiovascular Research Innovation Centre of the Victor Chang Institute. The recently established Innovation Centre drives transformative collaborations in cardiovascular research among researchers in New South Wales.
