Collaborate: Characterization of Ultra-Soft Materials

By October 25, 2022No Comments

FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of Florida International University’s new system for testing mechanical properties of an ultra-soft material in the meso/macro-length scale. This system allows for the measurement of bulk mechanical properties of centimeter-scale ultra-soft materials through the indentation technique, allows for mechanical property testing of ultra-soft materials, is adaptable for conventional table-top mechanical frames, and can be implemented at a minimal cost.

Of the many fields this system is applicable to, the tissue engineering market is on the rise. As of 2021, the tissue engineering market was worth $12.76 billion and is expected to reach $31.23 billion by 2030.

Florida International University’s system for testing mechanical properties of an ultra-soft material in the meso/macro-length scale is ready for collaboration, and they are looking for industry feedback on their research and potential future collaboration (licensing, partnerships, etc.). Is your company the right fit? If you’d be available for a conversation with the Florida International University team, you can schedule a time directly on their team’s calendar here.
