Overview

Nanoindentation is ideal for the characterization of inhomogeneous biological materials, but its use in biological systems is associated with some distinct challenges. For example, engineering materials used in the microelectronics industry (e.g., ceramics and metals) are relatively stiff and exhibit time-independent mechanical responses, whereas biological materials exhibit time-dependent behavior and can span a range of stiffness regimes. Therefore, there are differences in the selection of instrumentation, tip geometry, and data analysis in comparison with the "black box" nanoindentation techniques as sold by commercial manufacturers. The use of scanning probe equipment (atomic force microscopy) is also common for small-scale indentation of soft materials in biology.
