Webinar: Material Sciences in Biomedical Fields

Are you ready for in-depth insights on selected measurement methods for surface analysis in the biomedical field? Watch the webinar recording!

The webinar is about selected applications and challenges at hand. We present – in theory and in practice – analytical techniques and required instruments that help you get the desired results. In the course of this webinar, the focus is on these application examples:

  • Structural and morphological properties of polymer thin films for controlled drug release
    • Why and how to use atomic force microscopy (AFM) and grazing-incidence small-angle X-ray scattering (GISAXS) for combined structural characterization
  • Alternating charge of polyelectrolyte multilayers and protein-biomaterial interactions
    • Why and how to use surface zeta potential to perform surface charge analysis on titanium implants
  • Mechanical testing of tissue, coatings, and implants
    • Why and how to use nanointendation testing to analyze the stiffness of cartilage
    • Why and how to use nano scratch testing to analyze the adhesion of hard coatings on stents or prostheses
    • Why and how to use nano tribology to analyze the friction of contact lenses
