News and Events
Congratulations to Jeremy Teo and his team from the New York University Abu Dhabi for their article published in Advanced Biosystems on creating an artificial biosystem that allows to decipher the impact of biophysical and biochemical signals of APC and T-cell interactions in vitro.
This complex process is of interest and will contribute to an improvement in immunotherapy strategies. Their results showed that stiffness, in combination with specific antibodies, could modulate T-cell proliferation.
We are excited to announce the launch of our collaboration with Prof. Diego Mantovani and his talented research team at Université Laval.
With quarantine restrictions being lifted and with special protocols to follow, we had the opportunity to do some sanitized hands-on training (with masks!) with this great team of researchers on how to mechanically test their hydrogels non-destructively with ElastoSens Bio2.
We are delighted to support the first e-Seminar series on "Translational Biomedical Engineering" taking place on July 8th with Prof. Ali Khademhosseini.
Engineered materials that integrate advances in polymer chemistry, nanotechnology, and biological sciences have the potential to create powerful medical therapies. Dr. Khademhosseini's large and interdisciplinary group is interested in developing 'personalized' solutions that utilize micro- and nanoscale technologies to enable a range of therapies for organ failure, cardiovascular disease and cancer.
Congratulations to Prof. Showan N. Nazhat and his Team from McGill University for their article published in Journal of Mechanical Behavior of Biomedical Materials
Article on the investigation of using a novel approach to accurately and quantitatively measure and monitor the real-time changes in blood coagulation viscoelastic properties using a contact free non destructive technique called ElastoSensBio
Congratulations Jeremy Teo and his team from the New York University of Abu Dhabi for their article published in Advanced Biosystems
Article on T-cell activation to contribute to the improvement of cell based immunotherapy.
Congratulations to Cesare Stefanini from the Khalifa University of Science and Technology and Jeremy Teo from the New York University Abu Dhabi for their article published in Pharmaceutics
Article about Multi-Compartment 3D-Cultured Organ-on-a-Chip for drug testing.
Congratulations to Jiranuwat Sapudom, Walaa Mohamed, and Jeremy Teo at New York University Abu Dhabi in helping us better understand the immune response in such complex 3D microenvironments
Which will contribute to new therapeutic strategies for improving tissue repair, as well as serve to guide the design of immune-modulated materials.
We are pleased to see that ElastoSensBio helped in the formulation of their hydrogel and to non-destructively study the long term degradation of cell laden biomaterials used to engineer a multilayer infected skin model for drug screening and drug development.
We have officially completed our first international installation of the ElastoSensBio since the COVID19 outbreak
The ElastoSensBio arrived to CHU de Montpellier in perfect condition. With a full day of training, this team, dedicated to engineer cartilage, is now ready to run their own mechanical testing.
Webinar : Hydrogels and Architecture of 3D Bioprinted Scaffolds for applications in Tissue Engineering
This event would not have been possible without our speakers, so a warm thank you to Bowman Bagley, Brent Godau, Jakub Lewicki, Jeroen Geeraerts and Kathleen Duffy.
Elastosens X3 offers an innovative non-invasive technique to characterize viscoelastic properties of semisolid and solid gels. We have used the instrument for studying the gelation kinetics and predicting gel strengths of some of the common food gels. The technique has significantly reduced overall test time and thereby minimizing the finished product holdover time for quality assurance purposes.

We purchased an ElastoSens Bio for testing gel stiffness of our collagen and 3D matrix products. Initial results look very promising and we plan to fully incorporate this equipment for routine product QC testing and as a tool for new product development.
Advanced BioMatrix, Inc., CA, USA
We use CoaguSens every day in production to control the critical step of curd's cutting. This precision equipment allowed us to optimize our recipes and to improve the solids retention rate. Our investment in CoaguSens has been largely paid back owing to its impact on our production.
Laiterie Chalifoux Inc., Qc, Canada
We use our RheoSpectris C500 in everything from coursework to research projects. Its speed and ease of use allows us to focus on using the data rather than taking the data.
