We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the sponsors of our 2017 meeting of CellMech:

The journal of the Royal Society Interface:
Nature Physics


“In the life sciences field Optics11 introduce the new Piuma and Chiaro Nanoindenters which provide researchers with an easy and effective way of characterizing the micro-mechanical properties of a wide range of materials. The Piuma and Chiaro Nanoindenter find applications in the fields of cell biology, biophysics, biomaterials, tissue engineering, active polymers, soft matter science, (bio)interfaces, and many more. For a complete overview of our activities and solutions, please visit www.optics11.com.

Currently Optics11 provides researchers the opportunity to experience the Piuma Nanoindenter by remote or local demonstrations throughout Europe. In case of interest, please inform us at the CellMech 2017 conference or through info@optics11.com.“

(Conference attendees are encouraged to bring their sample to test with Optics11’s nanoindenter. For more information, contact c.perrault(at)sheffield.ac.uk)
