Reflecting the physiological conditions of the body

Fast reabsorbing materials, which are increasingly used in traumatology, surgery, and wound healing change their material properties incrementally as they make contact with mediums such saline solution. This must able to be regulated so that the reabsorbing biomaterials can be used purposefully. It is important to know and adapt to the changes in stiffness, tensile strength, and yield point during manufacturing and development.

In the field of biomaterials, the mechanical properties of both regenerative and artificial materials are researched. To reflect the physiological conditions of the body, mechanical tests should be performed in a temperature-controlled fluid bath. ZwickRoell's medium container for medical testing applications enables simulation of an in-vivo environment for tests on fast reabsorbing materials.

    Typical applications

    Typical applications for the medium container in the medical industry include testing of

    • Stents
    • Biological materials
    • Dental ceramics
    • Suture material

    Advantages & features

    • Glass container can be moved axially with spring support to enable clamping of the specimen outside the liquid medium
    • Includes collection trough and hose connection for draining the liquid.
    • Various test tools or specimen grips can be connected to the mounting stud located inside the bath
    • Quick dismantling for easy cleaning; disinfection also possible in autoclave up to 120°C
    • Traceability option in the testXpert III testing software sets the necessary requirements to satisfy all criteria of FDA 21 CFR Part 11
