Meet our Nanoindenters

Optics11 Life offers powerful table-top nanoindenters that are remarkably user-friendly, versatile, and robust. The nanoindentation instruments can measure complex, irregular biomaterials such as single cells, tissues, hydrogels, and coatings and provide various mechanical parameters relevant for mechanical phenotyping, drug development, and tissue engineering.


The Pavone is the worlds first fully integrated optical imaging, micro-mechanical indentation and incubation platform. The instrument provides a high-throughput solution to obtain larger quantities of datasets on mechanics of living cells and tissues.


The Piuma Nanoindenter can measure the mechanical properties of biomaterials, tissues, hydrogels and other larger soft samples. The samples can be characterized in air and in liquid. This table-top instrument is robust and very time-efficient. 


The Chiaro Nanoindenter is specifically designed for dual-use with any existing microscope to enable the mechanical characterization of small samples such as cells and microparticles. This compact instrument is easy to use but still highly accurate.
