Nanofiber Production Device Set to Accelerate Research into Nanofiber Applications in Medicine
Date:1/16/2013

into new nanomaterials is a very complex and protracted affair. There are great hopes for nanotechnology, as they are expected to benefit many areas where conventional materials have reached the limits of their use. It is here that 4SPIN®, the new electrospinning device, will step in to facilitate and enhance the efficiency of research into new materials.

Contipro is already working on a pilot version of the device to be used for the industrial production of nanomaterials.

The device is controlled intuitively via a touch screen. The central control system also ensures the stability of defined process conditions and the possibility of repeat measurements, factors essential for proper research. The possibility of combining four types of emitters and four types of collectors means that nanofibers from the whole range can be obtained, from disordered nanofibers produced at a precisely defined quantity to large volumes of directionally aligned nanofibers. Device is capable of use electrospinning, electroblowing and electrospraying technology. Besides nanofibers and microfibres, the device can also be used to prepare nanoparticles, used, for example, in the diagnosis of diseases or for the targeted treatment of tumours.

Nanotechnology in general has effectively become part and parcel of our everyday lives. Layers of nanofibers can be found in filters, work clothes, and bedding, where their ability to deliver miniature dimensions is exploited. What makes them particularly unique is their enormous surface area relative to their tiny volume, and the ability to prevent the penetration of bacteria and viruses without obstructing air flow.

To give an idea of the scale, nanofibres are fibres a thousand times finer than a human hair.
