iNano Capabilities :

Ease of Use Every element of the iNano is designed to provide lab technicians and researchers with an easy-to-use tool for characterizing their materials and products. From its innovative magnetic sample loading system to its industry leading sofware, iNano makes experiments simple and allows for mistake-free, high throughput mechanical testing that is required by today's leading labs. By eliminating the need for advanced test setup and complicated sofware exchanges, iNano is perfect for the first time user looking to prove their product or the seasoned scientist trying to unlock the best results for their research all while offering the best quality data available on the market. iNano was built with the sole purpose of keeping world-class nanoindention simple

Great Return on Investment For users in industry, the important questions is always "how will my lab tools make me money?" iNano answers the call by providing a device for characterizing both materials and products to give researchers the capability to control the quality, characteristics and performance of their products. Its cost effective design allows labs to stretch their budgets by eliminating the need to use third party contract laboratories to get the data they need, and allows for an unlimited number of test to be done in-house. This also eliminates the lengthy time delays of shipping samples and waiting for results

High Performance Researchers worried that an easy-to-use, affordable nanoindenter is a de-tuned tool can rest assured that iNano is anything but. iNano uses leading edge technology developed by the inventors of the nanoindenter and provides for world-class specifications and best-in-industry performance. With available data acquisition speeds of 100 kHz and industry leading 20 micro second time constants, iNano not only gives you the best data but also the most data points per dynamic experiment. With 50 mN of force and 50 microns of displacement, iNano also offers the best possible range of experiments and applications.
