Breakthrough NovaSpider 3D Spinning Machine for Nanofibre Production

Breakthrough NovaSpider 3D Spinning Machine for Nanofibre Production

Disruption: rupture or sudden interruption. Disruptive Innovation: is just what the Science Research Centre NanoGUNE has done, creating the NovaSpider 3D spinning machine, a breakthrough which is set to revolutionise the way nanofibres are produced. Why? Simple: because this machine enables the user to produce 3D structures based on state-of-the-art nanofibres in his/her own lab.
