MicroTester G2

  • Description
  • Specification


The MicroTester G2 is a micro-scale mechanical test system that does what others can’t. Smaller specimens, better force resolution, easier test setups, and great visuals. Applications include small tissue samples, hydrogel microspheres, cell spheroids, and engineered microtissues.
