Electrospinning Technology

Nicast’s highly versatile electrospinning technology allows the development of a wide range of products and devices, with tailored composition, geometry and morphology.

Almost any natural or synthetic polymer can be electrospun to create a nanofibrous mat. The intrinsic structure of the electrospun products, which mimics the natural extra cellular matrix (ECM), encourages quick and efficient tissue integration and minimizes medical complications.
