The BioWorkshop Invites You to a Free Virtual Workshop:

Viscoelastic Characterization of Biomaterials with Rheology and Dynamic Mechanical Analysis

Hosted online via Microsoft Teams

The BioWorkshop and TA Instruments are pleased to co-host a Rheology and DMA workshop focused on biomaterials. The workshop will cover fundamentals of rheological and mechanical analysis, test methodology and applications of these measurements in characterization of hydrogels, tissue and fluids.

Users may submit samples to TA Instruments for “hands-on” measurements, to be demonstrated over video on Wednesday October 7th. The due date for sample submission is September 25th.

Tuesday, October 6th

9:00 – 10:30: Rheological Characterization

  • Fundamentals of Rheology
  • Instrumentation and Configuration
