Tissue Elastometer (Model: TE-v2.0)
Tissue Elastometer TE-v2.0 is a desktop device for stress-strain measurements on small specimens of excised soft tissues, tissue mimicking materials and phantoms. The device measures the Young’s modulus of tissue samples based on stress vs. strain dependence.
- USB interface for laptop computer communication
- Fully controlled by Windows based application
- Results received within a minute
- Range: 2 kPa to 500 kPa
- Accuracy: 20%
- Allows to view and print out charts of stress/strain curve of tested sample
- Allows future analysis based on saved data (calibration, stress/strain measurements and Young’s modulus evaluation)
- Automatic calibration
- Functional control based on measurements of standard samples
Tissue Elastometer TE-v.2.0 comes with power supply, USB cable, a set of silicone samples for device testing, laptop computer, software and documentation.
