Product Brochure
Spinbox® Electrospinning & Electrospraying System

Spinbox®

Product Overview

Ideal for proof-of-concept of new materials and formulations. Its wide range of capabilities and exceptional reliability allows scientists to efficiently prototype and optimize their concepts.

Research-Grade Capabilities

Control 7+ parameters for nanofiber or nanoparticle development.

Compact & Ergonomic Design

Designed to fit in small laboratory spaces with built-in critical safety features.

Spinbox Features

This equipment not only offers the basic essentials to create electrosprayed particles and electrospun fibers, but it also offers a chemically resistant cabinet and multiple features to obtain aligned fibers, core-shell particles or fibers, ability to increase uniformity and production, among many other capabilities. As compared to home-built systems, this unit also offers the advantage of a passive exhaust system to remove gas solvents from both processes allowing the user to maximize their fume hood workspace. With the capability to work in horizontal or vertical spinning configurations, this unit offers flexibility for all of your application needs.

  • Designed to fit in small laboratory spaces
  • Ergonomic design
  • Easy to use
  • Flexible configurations to meet your needs
