News & Articles about electrospinning and electrospraying

A new, disruptive technology for the micro-encapsulation of active ingredients into particles has been developed by Bioinicia, in collaboration with the Institute of Agrochemical and Food Technology (IATA), part of the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC). This cutting-edge proprietary technique, named Electrospraying Assisted by Pressurized Gas (EAPG), is able to mass-produce large quantities of encapsulated active ingredients through a patented, modified electrospraying process. The standard electrospraying process (electro-hydrodynamic atomization) has many advantages over other methods for the encapsulation of bioactives: it is a room temperature process, has excellent encapsulation efficiency,...

Electrospinning equipment is designed for the fabrication of micro- and nano-scaled fibers or particles by electro-hydrodynamic processing, a technique that can be scaled-up for reproducible nanofiber production at commercially relevant volumes. There are many electrospinning equipment products in the market, catering for lab-scale materials research and proof-of-concept activities, all the way up to full industrial-scale manufacturing.  Due to the versatility of the electrospinning process and the wide variety of different applications, these electrospinning equipment products come in different shapes and sizes and are configurable with an array of different features...

Electrospinning is a voltage-driven process for the fabrication of nano and micro scale fibers. This technology is increasingly gaining importance in various industrial applications, where it enables higher end-product performance over conventional fibre production methods, such as wet spinning and melt spinning, due to the benefits that electrospinning equipment for fiber fabrication technique provide. The electrospinning process, in its most simple form, involves the application of high voltage to a spinneret through which a polymer solution is supplied, thereby creating an electrostatic field between the spinneret and a grounded or negatively...

Electrospinning is a process for the creation of nano and micro scale fibers, used for wide variety of applications. In this previous post, we explained some of the reasons to consider using electrospinning in your nanofiber-based research. Some of the most promising areas of application for electrospinning are in the biomedical field, including tissue engineering and regenerative medicine (TERM), wound healing, implant coatings, drug delivery, and biosensing, amongst others. Bioinicia have recently developed a highly specialized electrospinning device for medical applications which has several specific features focused towards the development and...
