About The Electrospinning Company

The Electrospinning Company designs, develops and manufactures advanced biomaterials for use in implantable tissue-regenerative devices. The company supplies the first electrospun material to be incorporated into an FDA-approved medical device that promotes endogenous tissue repair in orthopaedic surgery, and is building a pipeline of customer projects in a range of indications.

The challenge

As the world population ages and the cost of healthcare increases, there is increasing need for replacement body parts and treatment for chronic conditions that are affordable. New biomaterials, incorporated into medical devices, can be used to promote tissue repair and regeneration by the patients’ own stem cells.

 

The solution

Electrospun scaffolds are novel added-value biomaterials with the potential to address a wide range of innovative therapeutic applications. Despite their significant potential, only a handful of such materials are in clinical trials and products because of the challenge of consistent production. The Electrospinning Company manufactures clinical grade materials adding the reliability that is necessary for regulator and consumer confidence.
