Cell Electrospinning featured on BBC World News

Cell electrospinning was pioneered in 2006 by Jayasinghe et al, (Biomacromolecules 7(2006)3364-3369).

This technology is capable of directly drawing out cell laden fibres in practical quantities for forming scaffolds etc. Recently reconstructs generated (sheets or vessels) through this technology have been transferred into mouse models which have shown no rejection in anyway or form (Small DOI: 10.1002/smll.201300804).

These findings catapult cell electrospinning as an unrivalled cell scaffolding platform for generating living three-dimensional tissues. The technology has also very recently been demonstrated for wide spread applications within the life sciences (Analyst 138(2013)2215-2223), ranging from the generation of biological models to the development of tissue reconstructs for repair, replacement and rejuvenation, to its utility in drug delivery, cryopreservation to many other applications.
