Electrospinning has always provided the largest set of tools in engineering fibers for a variety of applications. The benefits of the technique are even more pronounced in tissue engineering, where controlling the various aspects of the fiber structure and morphology in a repeatable fashion is crucial for generating high-performance tissue scaffolds.
This webinar is focused on fiber alignment and two related fiber characteristics – porosity and mechanical strength. The talk explores different ways to incorporate porosity and alignment in the micro/nanofiber structure and its impact on cell growth and mechanical strength of the tissue scaffold.
There will be a brief overview of the typical methods used in electrospinning to control fiber characteristics. Then, Dr. Francisco J. Chaparro will dive into a live demonstration of the Fluidnatek LE-50 Electrospinning/Electrospraying system. He will provide practical advice for helping you achieve your desired fiber properties and discuss best practices for consistently producing nanofibers that meet your specifications.
