Biomomentum provides GLP-compliant biomechanical testing services and also manufactures and commercializes testing devices for the mechanical characterization of biomaterials and cartilage.
The Mach-1™ multiple-axis mechanical tester is the only all-in-one device designed for compression, tension, shear, friction, torsion and indentation mapping of cartilage, soft tissue and biomaterials. Also, unlike other micro/nanoindenters, the Mach-1 is the only tester that can automatically map in 3D the shape and mechanical properties of samples with curved surfaces using a proprietary Normal Indentation technique. This feature is particularly useful in cartilage repair pre-clinical studies to easily and rapidly evaluate the mechanical properties of native or regenerated articular cartilage. Due to its small footprint, modular design and customization features, the Mach-1™ offers versatility in numerous testing applications. Also, recognized as a versatile mechanical tester with user-friendly software, the Mach-1™ has been introduced within university labs and is deemed an excellent educational tool for students.
Biomomentum offers a full-service approach to biomechanical testing. In addition to performing highly controlled tests using a state-of-the-art technology, its expert team adheres to effective standard operating procedures, develops reliable testing protocols, and delivers accurate data analysis reports in compliance with Good Laboratory Practice. As an extension of their services, they design and manufacture accessories tailored to meet their clients’ specific study requirements.
