Measurements of Biolubrication

One area of particular expertise is the application of the AFM colloid probe technique for measurements of biolubrication. The ability to quantify frictional forces at biointerfaces is of crucial relevance for oral and dental applications as well as joint lubrication.


Measurement of friction between synthetic materials and biological tissues, such as that between the cornea and different types of contact lens materials, where the ease of blinking is an important factor for comfort is of great value to contact lens manufacturers.

Thanks to the merger with SP, you have access to extensive competence on further aspects of particularly Medtech issues. Biocompatibility tests and CE certification are examples of services.
