Can You Syringe a BioScience Material?
23 Apr 2014
Bioscience engineering is producing an array of new materials for use in the human body. Dental adhesives, ophthalmic fluids, bone joint fillers are but a few of the examples. Physical property testing is needed to qualify the performance of these materials, both in terms of how they handle as well as their final application within the body. This application note evaluates the extrusion force required to expel bioscience materials from a syringe using the CT3 Texture Analyzer.
