An X-ray cell for the acquisition of one-dimensional mechanical force-displacement diagrams of soft tissue samples has been developed. The combination of X-ray and mechanical data allows new insights into the coupling of the macroscopic behavior and nanoscopic structural changes during the application of load. Two linear mu-translation stages are used to symmetrically - i.e. bidirectionally - stretch the sample. A video-extensometer is installed to record geometrical changes of the sample during measurement which allows to determine true stresses and strains. The sample can be immersed in a liquid and heated. We demonstrate the advantages over common unidirectional tensile testing devices without length measurement systems by comparing different mechanical and diffraction data sets of human arterial tissue.
