New Non-Contact Technique Allows for Quantitative Characterization of Soft Biomaterials

February 18, 2021

Conventional rheology methods face limitations that can now be bypassed through the application of Resonant Acoustic Rheometry (RAR,) a new ultrasound-based technique that is helpful in identifying properties of soft biomaterials, such as hydrogels. Hydrogels are commonly used as a model of the extracellular matrix and help to recapitulate the structure and function of a […]
