Spraybase® Collectors

The Electrospinning starter kit comes with stainless steel flat plate collector as standard. The Electrospraying Kit comes with a Dish Collector as standard.

Optional Collectors include;

  • Horizontal Flat Plate Collector
  • Mandrel Collectors
  • Rotating Drum Collector
  • Multi-Emitter Rotating Drum

DISH COLLECTOR

dish collector

Our purpose designed circular stainless steel collector with lid, can be used to collect particles or fibers in a cross linking solution. These collectors are autoclavable, reusable and durable for everyday use. A pack contains 1 dish and 1 lid.

  • Materials: Stainless Steel
  • Collection Area:  90mm
  • Interchangeable: Yes

STAINLESS STEEL FLAT PLATE COLLECTOR

Our flat plate collector is made of stainless steel and integrates into our Spraybase® platform for collection of randomly distributed electrospun fibers and particles.

  • Materials: Stainless Steel
  • Collection Area:  145x230x1 mm.
  • Interchangeable: Yes

 


HORIZONTAL FLAT PLATE COLLECTOR

 

The Spraybase® platform can be modified to enable electrospraying or electrospinning onto a horizontal flat plate collector.

  • Materials: Stainless Steel
  • Collection Area:  145 x 230 x 1 mm.
  • Interchangeable: Yes

MANDREL COLLECTORS

Looking for a way to create fibers in a tubular structure? The mandrel collector contains a stage, controller and a set of 4 mandrel collectors, 1 each of  3, 4, 5 and 6 mm.  The emitter to collector distance range is 20-200 mm. The rotational speed can be adjusted from 0-5000 rpm. We can also custom make a specific Mandrel collector and have recently designed with a 25 mm diameter. There is no translational movement with this standard set up but if required please speak with the team.

  • Materials: 306 Stainless Steel
  • Collection Area:  Diameter 3, 4, 5 and 6 mm, 100 mm length
  • Interchangeable: Yes

 


ROTATING DRUM COLLECTOR

Spraybase® Rotating Drum Collector

The Spraybase® Rotating Drum collector is Dynamically balanced to G6.3 standard. This collection module consists of the rotating drum unit with a translational linear motion emitter. 

Fiber Depostion: At low rotational speeds, the fibers are randomly deposited onto the surface of the drum. As the rotational speed of the drum is increased typically >1000 rpm, fibers are deposited on the surface in an aligned orientation. 

  • Programmable linear motion emitter, 300 mm excursion, 0-1 m/s
  • Drum size is 300 mm in Circumference, 300 mm in width and diameter 96.5 mm
  • Maximum rotational speed is 4000 rpm

The rotating drum module is designed for integration with the Spraybase® Electrospinning Starter Kit. This piece of engineering offers outstanding safety, reproducibility and stability. Finally, the emitter is interchangeable and a variety of emitters are available to take advantage of this high-performance module.

The Spraybase® Rotating Drum safety cover comes with a safety interlock that cuts the power to the high voltage once the cabinet is opened. The dimensions of the safety cabinet are 85 cm wide x 70 cm deep x 44 cm. 


NEW ROTATING DRUM COLLECTOR WITH MULTI-HEAD EMITTER

Our new Multi-Emitter Rotating Drum Collector can enable the end user to electrospin or electrospray 3 independently controlled solutions at the one time onto the drum collector.

For example you could electrospin fibers, electrospray live cells and deposit stimuli all at the same to create an ideal scaffold for tissue engineering purposes. Similarly to our rotating drum all emitters can translate across the drum as shown here in the video. 

  • Programmable linear motion emitter, 300 mm excursion, 0-1 m/s
  • Drum size is 300 mm in Circumference, 300 mm in width and diameter 96.5 mm
  • Maximum rotational speed is 4000 rpm

 


ITO Covered PET Sheets

Also we provide indium tin oxide (ITO) a conducting substrate covered PET sheets that are flexible and conducting and cover the circumference of the drum so that easy removal of the fibers can be obtained. The ITO sheets come in a pack of 5 and can be purchased on our webstore. 

ITO sheets to create easy post processing fiber mats.
