Bruker Hysitron BioSoft In-situ Indenter

In-situ indenter for soft biomaterials mechanical characterisation

Bruker NanoSurfaces



Bruker's Hysitron BioSoft In-Situ Indenter is a first-of-its-kind instrument specifically designed for multiscale quantitative mechanical testing of biological materials and soft matter, such as hydrogels. BioSoft synchronises powerful mechanical and optical characterisation techniques to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the mechanics of biomaterials. This portable system integrates with existing inverted optical microscopes to bring advanced biomechanical testing capabilities into your laboratory.


Maximised Test Flexibility

  • Integrates with inverted microscopes to characterise a broad range of biological materials
  • Easily transports into any laboratory with the included watertight carry case
  • Enables biomehcanical testing while maintaining the capability to perform complex experiments with simpler operation and multi-user software
  • Achieves results quickly with easy chagning between a wider variety of probes in under a minute

Quantitative Results

  • Provides a unique combination of force sensitivity and displacement range specifically engineered to emasure biological specimens from sub-cellular to tissue levels
  • Allows for non-destructive multiscale characterisation of localised and bulk properties with sophisticated indentation
  • Maintains a 750 nN force noise floor and <1 nm displacement noise floor
  • Delivers up to 10 mN force and 150 μm displacement range

Advanced BioMech Control Module

  • 96 kHz maximum data acquisition rate
  • Performs interchangeable load, displacement and open-loop control within a single test
