Electrospinning EquipmentStarter Kit
After seeing the ever-increasing requirement for electrospinning equipment, we have produced our very first electrospinning starter kit. Utilising our versatile 7xx30 series benchtop power supply, and combining that with a digitally set infusion pump, our starter kit gives the user a precise high voltage power supply and a syringe pump for easily controlled continuous production in an electrospinning environment. The perfect combination for producing nanofibers and other electrospinning applications.
What is Electrospinning?
Electrospinning is the process of producing fibers (normally Nanofibers) and particles by means of applying a voltage process (electrohydrodynamic phenomena) to a polymer solution by incorporating the use of a receptacle, a pump, a high voltage power supply and a collector.
Key Benefits of Syringe Pump:
- Syringe purge mode.
- Easy-to-use keypad interface.
- Precise reproducible flow rates.
- Remembers previous settings on power up.
- Pumps continuously until you stop the pump.
- Infusion rate can be changed while pumping.
- Power failure mode allows pump to continue pumping after a reset.
- Won't take up unnecessary space on your laboratory or production bench.
- Syringe pumps are known for their capability in delivering a precise and smooth flow.
