CellScale was founded in 2005 with the goal of making custom mechanical test systems developed at the University of Waterloo available to other researchers. The first system was a biaxial test system to better understand the relationship between glaucoma and scleral stiffness. To accomplish the research goals, it was necessary to develop mounting techniques that were appropriate for this tough and rubbery material. It was also necessary to develop digital image correlation-based analysis tools to verify the specimen’s strains. This project laid the basis for what is now the BioTester.

The second system was a micro-scale uniaxial test system that was used to study the driving forces behind tissue remodeling during the embryogenesis of axolotls. Due to the small forces and displacements involved, cantilever-based microwire force transducers were developed and paired with a micro-resolution actuator. The techniques used in this project led to the development of the MicroSquisher.

Over the years CellScale has expanded our line of mechanical testing products, launched a line of bioreactors, and built many custom solutions. We are grateful to the many academic and industry researchers we have had the honour of working with over the years. In the future, we look forward to continuing to develop new technologies and equipment that will drive research and ultimately impact the health and wellbeing of us all.
