Paper Abstract

The equipment is developed to measure and control micro-pressure in loading experiment of plant cell mechanics. The motivation for the development of this equipment was to maintain a stationary micro-pressure on the agar of culturing cells to keep cytoactive in biology experiments. A singlechip controls the stepping motor of this equipment to drive loading equipment in the system, in order to load between 50mN and 250mN under a constant voltage. The accuracy is estimated to be ±0.4 mN. The structure and control system of this equipment is introduced and described in detail. The experimental results show that the equipment is capable of maintaining a constant, stationary micropressure in cell culturing application and is worth of extending and applying.
