  • Electrospinning (ES) is an affordable manufacturing process to produce nanoscale, polymer fibers.

  • During ES, a high voltage differential is required to draw out polymer fibers from a polymer solution at a charged spinneret.

  • Fibers produced are then deposited onto an oppositely charged electrode.

  • ES typically requires large, immovable equipment and conductive surfaces for deposition of fibers.

  • Portability and on-demand ES of fiber mats onto non-conductive surfaces would enable use in re- mote locations with limited access to medicine.
