Elmarco: Electrospinnning technology
SpinPlant carries out R&D projects with a Nano-Spider manufactured by Elmarco. The company Elmarco, located in Liberec, Czech Republic, is the world market leader for electrospinning production units. The proof of concept to SpinPlant’s approach to the production of collagen fibers on a nanoscale was achieved with the Nano-Spider. Therefore, SpinPlant continues its R&D work with the Nano-Spider.
SpinPlant is closely cooperating with Fraunhofer Society and its subsidiaries. Fraunhofer is the lead investor and SpinPlant entered into a close scientific cooperation with Fraunhofer Institut für Werkstoffmechanik (IWM) in Halle. On the basis of this R&D cooperation SpinPlant's NanoSpider is located in the professionally equipped laboratories at Fraunhofer Halle.
TRM/University of Leipzig
In 2014 SpinPlant entered into R&D cooperation with the Translationszentrum für Regenerative Medizin (TRM) at Leipzig University. SpinPlant’s laboratory is established at the TRM. In a joint research project SpinPlant benefits from the resources of the TRM, notably the local GMP facilities.
The Forschungsinstitut für Leder und Kunststoffbahnen (FILK), located in Freiberg, Saxony, is a leading research institute for collagen and SpinPlant’s partner in collagen chemistry since 2014.
