Electro-spraying, or electro-spinning is used to create very fine fibers or threads from a wide range of liquids. Typically, microfluidic fluid flows are aimed at an electrode some distance away, and the fluid is drawn out using a high voltage electric field.

DIY your own Electro-spinning device

Open source electrospinning equipment Want to build your own Electro-spinning device? Take a look at Assistant Professor Eric Lima's page for plans and videos. Note pump used is a Braintree Scientific which is compatible with SyringePumpPro. If you do try this - take care with the high voltages - pumps, computers and people [...]

Electro-spinning – High Voltage Protection

The above diagram shows a layout for electro-spinning or electro-spraying. More details about the pump to PC interface cables. Whilst I talk about electro-spinning in this post, my comments apply to electro-spraying too. Taylor cone - Wikipedia Electro-spinners use a very high voltage up to 50kV (at a low current) to attract a [...]

Electrospinning – take care!

This week, there's a sad story from a SyringePumpPro owner. He blew up his pump and computer - his high voltage setup wasn't best practice. What's Electro-spinning? Electro-spinning is a fascinating technology which I have personally had no experience with. It's all about nano-fibres and such - amazing technology. A syringe pump is used [...]
