Young’s Modulus and Tangential Modulus measurements of Hydrogel samples by Micro-Texture analyzer (YEONJIN S-Tech, Korea)
Hydrogel samples are tested with 0.1 mm/sec compressive rate for the measurement of Young’s Modulus by Stress/Strain and Tangential Modulus by ΔStress/ΔStrain.
1.5 N Load cell was calibrated with 0.1 N standard weight and verified.
3 mm metal cylinder probe was used.
