ActiveLife Scientific develops instruments for researchers who desire to directly measure the material properties of bone, tissue, and biomaterials using clinically relevant technology.

 


BioDent™ is a versatile (in vivo / ex vivo – large / small samples) bench-top instrument for measuring the material properties of hard and soft tissues as well as biomaterials.


OsteoProbe® RUO is a hand-held instrument utilized by laboratory and clinical researchers for measuring the material properties of bone in vivo.

 

How do BioDent™ and Osteoprobe® work?

BioDent™ and OsteoProbe® use Reference Point Indentation (RPI) to investigate the material properties of a tissue. For more on the science behind RPI visit OpenMateriomics.com.

What is Reference Point Indentation?

A novel technique for measuring the local mechanical properties of a material. It sets a localized reference point at the material’s surface that enables precise indentation measurements in previously impossible environments, such as: non-uniform surfaces and in vivo.
