There has been an increased use of silicone gel for applications such as cell traction force measurements as well as lab-and organ-on-chip systems. However, silicone gel is a viscoelastic material which tends to undergo non-elastic deformation and displays time-dependent and strain rate-dependent responses. Here, we evaluated the mechanical responses of two types of commonly used silicone gels, Sylgard-184 and CY52-276, when subjected to nanoNewton force and micrometer displacement lengthdoi:10.1016/j.piutam.2014.12.004 fatcat:62xmf2ratffy5efqidufq5aafq
