The MecanoBioFab develops original technological tools to support the institute's researchers in both the field of mechanical properties measurements on cells and tissues and in the field of manufacturing 2D and 3D supports for the elaboration of in-vitro models.
The AFM Mechanobiology platform develops new automated approaches to acquire the mechanical properties of cells, cell populations and tissues.
The platform engineer evaluates the user's request and proposes the most suitable solution for his needs. He :
- provides advice in the design of experiments,
- trains the users,
- assists users in the analysis and interpretation of their results,
- assists users in setting up research projects through collaboration with CERT.
