What is it about?
We demonstrate a simple and versatile nanomechanical force measuring setup with 1 nN precision in air and vacuum using a load cell of an ultra-micro balance. We validate the stability, precision, and linearity of the load cell with simple tests.

Why is it important?
The setup is customized to measure the stress-strain response of biomaterials (silk, leaf, and flower) and capillary force in fluids.
