Abstract

We demonstrate experimental mechanical testing of single live biological cells in-situ under an optical microscope. Tensile loading was the mode of load application and the response of live biological cells were observed in-situ. The experimental set-up is small enough to fit within the stage of a fluorescence microscope. Bovine Aortic Endothelial cells were tested in this study and were found to be able to undergo very large applied strains without loss of cell's mechanical integrity.
