Bioinicia presented its DHA encapsulation method at AOCS 2017 Bioinicia was invited to attend the AOCS Annual Meeting 2017 which took place in Orlando (USA) from 30th April to 3rd May. AOCS is an international business forum focused on fats, oils, lipids and other related materials. The main industries within these fields worldwide were present at this event. Some industrial companies were particularly interested in Bioinicia’s own method for encapsulation of DHA – Omega 3 oil (as well as encapsulation of other natural essences and materials) at room temperature. This method is already available for potential interested customers....

The importance of having (a good) AC unit One question we are frequently asked is “how critical is it to have an air conditioned electrospinning/electrospraying machine for obtaining good results and controlling the process?” Well, we always give the same response: it depends on what your goals are! It is clear that temperature and relative humidity are important parameters in the electrospinning process, as they affect the evaporation of solvent from the spinning jet and therefore the morphology of the resulting materials. Depending on where your machine will be, the ambient temperature and relative humidity...

There was definitely something different in NANOTEC 2016, further to the relevance of the electrospinning technology: it was asked the speakers to focus their presentations in problem solving and the benefits provided to the corresponding applications from a very practical point of view, rather than making a more academic approach. And for sure it was a wise decision of the Organizing Committee, since no few industrial companies attended the event. There were many interesting topics, we are just going to show some highlights related to electrospinning & electrospraying technologies for different fields...

Multi-jet technology is a necessary approach to increase the throughput of the electrospinning process. Although multi-jet electrospinning is a more complex process than the single-jet, it has been demonstrated to be a better approach to enhance electrospinning productivity rather than substantially increasing the throughput of a single spinneret. Modified single-nozzle, multi-nozzle and needleless systems, have been developed to obtain multiple jets and thus to increase the system throughput.  Multi-jets electrospinning was first accomplished using a single nozzle with a grooved tip, from the branches of which multi-jets were formed. This multi-cone...

Bioinicia will participate in the EU H2020 project OPTINANOPRO, an Innovation action aimed at concluding an industrial demonstration of processes based on particles nanodeposition, using Fluidnatek electrospinning technology, among other techniques. The industrial demonstration will be carried out in real companies working at the packaging, automotive and solar energy sectors.The project is to be started in October 2015 and will last 3 years. It will involve the collaboration of  four research centres and eleven industrial partners from seven different EU countries....
