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.
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 [...]
