New measuring device added to our experimental capabilities

Lisa and Prof. Boccaccini in the lab.

We have added an electrical conductivity measuring device to expand the experimental capabilities of our laboratory. The electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) device will enable us to characterize electrically conductive materials in greater detail. The advantage of this device lies in its adaptability to different sample types and the realization of non-invasive measurements in real time. Moreover, it allows us to deduct electrical model circuits from the measurements which can further be feed into simulations. It will be mainly apply in our project involving electrically conductive hydrogels led by Lisa Schoebel (PhD student) in the frame of our participation in the Collaborative Research Center SFB 1270/2 ELAINE – Electrically Active Implants.. We thank the DFG funded ELAINE consortium for the financial support.
