Electrospinning has become an ideal technique for generating samples for tissue engineering as it is able to reproducibly fabricate micro or nanofibers that biomimic the structural and physicochemical properties of extracellular matrix from native tissues. The large surface area offered by electrospun fibers, the cost-effectiveness of the technique, and the ability to track important parameters such as real-time sample thickness during processing make electrospinning an attractive choice for academic as well as industrial R&D.
In this webinar, you will be introduced to electrospinning and explore the fundamentals of the technique, including key parameters that influence sample reproducibility throughout the development process. Current medical applications in the field including wound healing, heart valves, nerve conduits, blood vessels, stent coating, and 3D structures will be discussed. As the electrospinning technology has significantly evolved over the past years, this webinar will also cover the future of electrospinning. We will also discuss a few specialized system configurations that are tailored towards specific applications such as industrial-scale production, cGMP and ISO-13485 regulated environments, and production of electrospun samples under sterile conditions.
