Electrospinning is a resourceful technique for creating fibrous scaffolds that are suitable for a wide variety of applications in nanotechnology. Through extensive nanotechnology research and development (R&D), researchers are examining the electrospinning process from a new perspective. The increase in the R&D of electrospinning techniques can be attributed to nanoengineering and nanotechnology gaining more attention due to the increased applications in this field.
We stand believing that innovation and great design has the power to change the world. In the recent past, it was difficult, if not impossible, for small to medium-sized companies to design and develop cutting-edge products. Without in-house R&D capabilities and expensive budgets, large multi-national companies used to dominate the industry over their competitive advantage. Now times have changed.
Inovenso provides services related to the electrospinning technology to accelerate the clients’ project or tasks and solve their problems as quickly and cost-efficiently as possible. We partner with our clients to ensure we thoroughly understand the issue and provide detailed information on how it will be solved. Our client’s projects can be conducted entirely at our facility or a split between internal work and partial work at the client’s facilities.
With product Development, we offer R&D services based on electrospinning technology. Our services range from design to development and analytical services that convert great ideas to scalable prototypes and final commercial products. We urge companies to partner with us for advanced product development that will meet their application needs. With intellectual property and technical expertise, we will develop a custom product that meets the requirements through a structured approach following specified milestones. We work with our customers right from the initial R&D stage up to the manufacturing stage.
Through contract manufacturing, we offer clients a bespoke manufacturing service that meets research grade and commercial grade material. The contract will be based on the client’s customized product specification and product supply terms and conditions. We offer the possibility of producing customizable commercial nanofiber-based products under OEM Business agreements with private labelling. Examples of the application areas that we cover: Bio-medical (Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, Artificial organs, wound dressing), Pharmaceutical (Drug delivery systems), Filtration (Air filters, Oil/Liquid filters), Cosmetics (Anti-ageing Facial masks) and Energy (Battery separators, energy storage devices, Solar cells, ). Certain categories of Textile applications can also be covered. Get in touch with us to learn more about our services.
We offer a series of studies tailored to the client’s needs supported by flexible business models:
- Scaffold design: We design and manufacture electrospun scaffolds in a wide range of formats, morphologies, shapes and sizes. We can customize a range of attributes to match the client’s needs for cell growth and interaction and fit with other materials or medical device components.
- Analytical services: We will offer analytical services to the developed electrospun constructs by our clients and supply a certificate of analysis with all samples
Concept plans: Turning an idea into a Target Product Profile including technical feasibility, regulatory and IP considerations, bearable pricing and risks.
Feasibility studies: Evaluating whether we can create a scalable, reproducible process from a concept or lab scale process.
Pre-design control studies to design freeze: Research studies to achieve the desired target profile and optimize the process including packaging and sterilization regimes. Make samples for in vitro and other testing.
Design control Modules: Verification and Validation studies to establish the tolerances of the optimized process.
Regulatory studies: Manage ISO biocompatibility studies with accredited third-party suppliers and coordinate documentation. Generation of documents for Design History File.
Pilot production: Product batches with Certificates of Conformance to the finalized product specifications.
Industrial Production: Contract manufacturing of the final product, by using customized Industrial Electrospinning System.
