Transported by LTL Freight (Truck)

Product Options

Control Model:

Personalization

    MSK-NFES-3 is a bench-top electrospinning system. It features user-friendly and task-oriented design. The ease of operation and competitive pricing places our equipment ahead of other products available in the market. MSK-NFES-3 syringe pump renders a smooth and uninterrupted flow enabling uniform spinning. The high voltage power supply delivers 0-30 kV output voltage range with a maximum current capacity of 0.5 mA. A Y-stage target, a stationary plate target, and rotating mandrels of different diameters are included along with the unit.
    MSK-NFES-3 fume hood provides an enclosed atmosphere with transparent side walls to monitor the electrospinning process. A common electronic control unit is integrated into the fume hood. The fume hood also has features like the exhaust fan, granite work surface, halogen lighting, and optional features like exhaust duct dimension customization.
    Nanofiber Electrospinning unit is a system for producing the ultrafine fiber with the diameter of 20 - 1000 nm. The nanofiber has a high specific surface area, small diameter, and large porosity. There are more than 100 kinds of polymers could be used as raw materials, and also protein, collagen, organics (PEO, DNA, PAA, PLA, nylon, polyester, acryl resin, PVA, PS, PAN, peptide, cellulose).

Note: Updated with one 3-axis nozzle & Dual-channel syringe pump with independent speed control from July 1, 2016. Updated with integrated humidity monitor from February 1, 2017

SPECIFICATIONS

Features
  • Software control of various features like mandrel rotating speed, duration, syringe pump flow rate, X, Y stage speed, etc.
  • Rotating mandrel targets of varying diameters, Y-stage target, and stationary plate target are provided with the system.
  • Stand-alone fume hood has features like exhaust fan, halogen lighting, and transparent door for monitoring electrospinning process
