Abstract

We present the tensile characterization system of biomembranes. Since their thickness is just a few micro-meters, we have the difficulties in handling of the flimsy and small test piece in liquid. To face these challenges, we developed the following novel devices. (1) The force sensor clamp consisting the microfluidic chuck and the water-proof force sensor. (2) The house-designed microcutter to prepare the dumbbell-shaped test piece. (3) The flexible membrane container to handle the test piece.
