Materials Characterization Core


Materials characterization equipment

The Wyss Institute Materials Characterization Core is dedicated to promoting leading edge biologically inspired research by providing users with a wide range of state-of-the-art materials characterization equipment and analysis software. These tools help support the characterization of a material’s unique physical, chemical, and mechanical properties. The Materials Characterization Core team provides exceptional hands on training, method development, and technical expertise. We will continue to  introduce the latest innovations in materials characterization to the Wyss Institute community and our affiliated partners.

Our current techniques include chromatography, mass spectrometry, UV-Vis spectroscopy, particle sizing, quartz crystal microbalance, electrochemical testing, rheology, and nanoindentation. Additional characterization tools, including vibrational spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy, and scanning electron microscopy, can also be found in the Wyss Institute Imaging Core.
