Electrospinning & Spraying Capabilities

Enviromental Controlled Process to
Achieve Reproducible Results

Environmental conditions are critical to obtain reproducible nanofiber production. The systems we utilize tightly control for temperature and relative humidity to make the process transfer and scale-up more seamless.

Utilizing needle-based electrospinning keeps the starting polymer solution in an air-tight closed reservoir in order to minimize and prevent solvent evaporation ensuring consistent fibers or particles production. The needle-based electrospinning method increases control over morphology and reproducibility for constant long-term production. Different properties and structures like single-phase, core-shell, multi-axial, dual solutions, blended polymers solutions, specific fiber orientation, and porosity for desired scaffolding can be controlled and developed under tight temperature and relative humidity with our equipment.

LE100

Standard Capabilities

Sample type:

  • We can create electrospun fibers, electrospray particles or a mixture of both at the same time
  • Samples from one solution (single-phase) or two simultaneous solution at the same voltage (coaxial or core-shell) can be manufactured

Batch-to-batch reproducibility:

  • Solution is fully characterized (viscosity, conductivity, surface tension and solids content) to ensure consistent results even before sample processing
  • We are able to tightly control temperature and relative humidity during sample development to obtain reproducible results

Sample size:

  • We can develop samples up to 30 cm x 62 cm

Collector:

  • Flat plate collector to create sheets
  • Rotating drum to create large sheets or aligned fibers
  • Mandrel to obtain cylindrical shaped structures

Temperatures:

18 – 45 °C

Relative Humidity:

10 – 80%

Improved Sample Development

  • Gas assisted and solvent vapor capable to avoid needle clogging of easily drying solutions
  • Up to 40 simultaneous needles in single-phase or coaxial setup
  • Displacement of needles during sample development to improve sample uniformity and thickness homogeneity across the sample size
  • Capable of hot solution electrospinning (up to 120°C)
  • We work directly with the customer and provide constant feedback to improve sample development

Nanofiber and particle analysis

  • SEM imaging is provided for all samples
  • Full characterization of the sample is provided (fiber diameter, pore size, particle size, surface roughness)
  • Elemental analysis
