The following video shows how Dr. Todd McDevitt's laboratory at Georgia Tech is using the CellScale Microsquisher on stem cell aggregates.
The MicroSquisher is designed to perform compression testing on specimens between 50µm and 2mm with force resolutions as small as 50nN. Forces are determined from the deflection of a flexible cantilever beam to which one compression plate is attached. Displacement control is achieved by manipulating the base of that beam using a motorized piezo stage.
