Synthetic Tissue Mimicking for Biomedical Equipment Testing

Hydrogels provide a clinically realistic testing platform that is more reproducible and long-lasting than animal or cadaver models. Applications for instrument and device testing using synthetic tissue mimicking include:

  • Arteries and blood vessel layer constructs for testing cardiovascular tools
  • Tissues phantom for testing and tracking biopsy needle efficacy 
  • Hydrogels with the correct permittivity and conductivity to match the electromagnetic properties of bone and soft tissues, used for the verification and validation of medical devices

Focusing initially on arterial models by matching the compliance of aortic vessels, our abilities have evolved into an advanced casting procedure capable of fabricating two-ply constructs incorporating particulate matter to mimic lesions or plaque formation. Composite construction design is an ongoing process continually incorporating additional detail including pores of varying diameter.
