TECH

In-situ manufacturing with novel "electrospinning" technology.


Electrospinning is a well-established technique using high voltages to create fluid jets which dry during flight to deposit a mesh of very fine fibres.
With Corryn's patent-pending technology, we bring electrospinning out of clean-room production environments and directly to patients and other sensitive substrates.
EPSRC-funded research for handheld electrospinning for redistributed manufacturing of wound dressings.
Demonstration of in-situ fabrication of nanofibrous mesh onto healthy skin by handheld electrospinning systems.

GOALS

To improve wound treatment and patient outcomes.

Chronic and complex wounds represent a significant financial and logistical burden to healthcare systems worldwide[1],[2]. These wounds are frequently multi-factorial, with a range of etiologies and comorbidities, further compounding the strain on clinical resources. Care protocols for chronic wounds vary significantly from patient to patient, and across different geographies, however studies on wound care have shown extremely challenging scenarios such as infected pressure or diabetic foot ulcers may require dressing changes every 2 days or more[3]. Such frequent dressing changes require huge investments in nursing time, can be extremely painful for patients, and can disrupt the healing process - further extending the time to heal.

To address the considerable clinical challenges observed in wound care, particularly those found in chronic and complex wounds, a wide range of wound care products are available to both patients and carers. From infection-controlling additives such as silver[4] and antimicrobial honey[5], to exudate-managing materials such as calcium alginates[6] and hydrogels. In recent years negative pressure wound therapy solutions have also become more widespread in clinical use. In general, these products aim to promote a moist wound healing environment, whilst minimising the potential for infection and removing excessive levels of exudate. However, wound dressings rarely function in isolation in complex wounds. Techniques such as doppler, compression bandages, and circulation-stimulating devices are all used in combination with wound dressings in practice[7].

Corryn's technology platform aims to bring clear clinical advantages to patients, whilst maintaining simplicity for care providers. In addition to the documented advantages of nano and microfibres in wound care[8], Corryn's handheld electrospinning wound dressing platform delivers charged materials directly to the wound, unlike any pre-packaged dressing. This property is expected to improve delivery, penetration and efficacy of active materials such as antimicrobials and analgesics[9].

Corryn Biotechnologies materials library provides both synthetic and natural polymers to be delivered with micro or nano architecture with no technical operator expertise. For more advanced formulations, our materials library can be easily combined with advanced bioactives for delivery and we are actively seeking partner organisations looking to deliver advanced materials.

    Traditional Dressings
    To address clinical challenges in wound care, particularly those found in chronic and complex wounds, a wide range of wound care products are available - from infection-controlling additives such as silver [4] and antimicrobial honey [5], to calcium alginates and hydrogels for moisture control [6]. More recently negative pressure wound therapy solutions have also become more widespread in clinical use. These products aim to promote wound closure by ensuring a moist wound healing environment, minimising wound site infections, and removing excessive levels of exudate. However, wound dressings rarely function in isolation, and techniques such as doppler ultrasound, compression bandages, and circulation-stimulating devices are all used in combination with wound dressings to assist in recovery.[7].
