Requirements and design specifications
High dynamic performance.
Usable in standard incubators.
User configurable stress profile.
Device ease of use: easy replacement of culture plate, compact size.
Attività svoltePerformed activities
From functional diagram up to prototype realisation.
Choice of motion transmission.
