ElectroForce multi-specimen BioDynamic test instruments can be used for a variety of tissues and biomaterials, and allow reproducible mechanical stimulation, for statistical characterization of multiple specimens. With multi-mover capabilities for tension/compression loading and dynamic (pulsatile) flow stimulation, multi-specimen BioDynamic instruments from TA ElectroForce open up new research possibilities for advanced tissue engineering and biomaterials research
TA ElectroForce BioDynamic test instruments provide accurate mechanical stimulation and characterization characterization of biomaterials and biological specimens within a sterile cell culture media environment. The instruments can be used for the evaluation of a variety of specimens, including biomaterials, acellular and cell-seeded scaffolds, native tissue samples and tissue-engineered constructs.
The TA ElectroForce 3DCulturePro bioreactor is a multi-specimen perfusion bioreactor for reproducible and reliable tissue growth. This system supports cell growth and 3D tissue culture in an easy-to-use, scalable setup. The bioreactor comes as a single, standalone chamber with specimen fixtures or as a complete, multi-chamber system with a perfusion pump to fill the needs of individual labs at an affordable price.
This bioreactor can be used by biologists interested in 3D cell culture, biomedical researchers and medical device product manufacturers transitioning from static to perfusion fluid flow culture, and pharmacologists and drug development researchers looking for in vitro test beds or ex vivo drug delivery systems.
The ElectroForce 5500 test instrument provides characterization and stimulation capabilities for a variety of synthetic materials such as composites and elastomers, biomaterials, tissue samples, and tissue-engineered constructs. It features a 200 N maximum force.
This test instrument is versatile and can meet the individualized needs of educators and researchers through a variety of fixtures and software options.
ElectroForce 3500 test instruments are available in three base system configurations. The 3510 instrument, rated at 7.5 kN, is configured with the linear motor installed in the upper crosshead, making it well-suited for applications requiring a temperature-controlled bath. The 3520 instrument is rated at 7.5 kN, and the linear motor is installed in the lower baseplate. The 3550 instrument is a higher-force configuration rated at 15 kN.
ElectroForce Series II 3300 test instruments are well-suited for a variety of tests that include ASTM and ISO standards for medical devices, materials characterization, and long-term durability tests. The ElectroForce 3300 series includes two test instruments; the ElectroForce 3310 provides 1000 N of maximum force while the ElectroForce 3330 provides 3000N. Both test instruments can perform tests that range from one cycle per day (or static tests) up to 100 Hz Select the force capacity that is appropriate for your testing needs.
The ElectroForce 3200 Series III test instruments feature a 225 N (450 N optional) maximum force. With the versatility of static to 300 Hz frequency response, the table-top configuration is adaptable to a variety of biomedical research and engineered materials test applications, including torsion testing, creep under dynamic loading and special environments (hot/cold chambers).
Measuring less than 50.8 cm (20 inches) tall, the ElectroForce 3100 test instrument is the smallest in the ElectroForce product family. The 3100 will fit on a desk or table-top, and it is extremely lab friendly thanks to its practically maintenance-free operation. The 3100 instrument is well-suited for micro-characterization of materials and devices because of its exceptional control resolution up to 22 N static maximum force.
