Medspray is inventor and manufacturer of innovative spray nozzles. Located at ‘Kennispark’, the business and science park of Twente University in the Netherlands, Medspray uses nano technology to create spray nozzles from silicon with tiny orifices (approximately 2 micrometer in diameter) for a fine nebulization. For reference, a human hair has a diameter of 70 microns.Medspray is ISO 13485 certified for development and manufacturing of medical devices. The production of spray nozzles is located at Medspray in Enschede, in dedicated ISO 7 clean rooms. World wide partners assemble Medspray’s nozzles in mutually developed spray devices. In the summer of 2019 Medspray expects to make its 1 millionth spray nozzle unit, in 2020 we expect to scale further to a production of more than 1 million nozzles per month.Medspray’s mission is based on sustainability. The use of propellants in spray cans for cosmetics and in inhalers can be completely avoided by using Medspray nozzles and simple mechanisms like a plastic pump. Current HFA pMDIs (pressurized metered dose inhalers for e.g. Asthma and COPD) have a similar CO2 exhaust as a car trip of 290 km!Since the inhaler devices have entered the public domain, our nozzles also have caught the attention of other industries, such as cosmetics. Ap apparently the requirements of a spray for the pharmaceutical industry also apply for the cosmetics industry: long actuation time (multiple seconds), narrow particle size distribution, tuneable spray cone and propellant free operation.Medspray, tiny technology for a sustainable future.
Wietze Nijdam is responsible for technology development at Medspray BV, the Netherlands. Medspray develops novel technology for liquid inhalers and spray devices, based on their proprietary micro nano technology spray nozzles. Wietze joined Medspray eleven years ago to industrialize early developments and outsource silicon.Wietze (born in 1970) has a background in silicon processing (M.Sc. Electrical Engineering, University of Twente) with specialization in perforated thin membranes. After graduation Wietze has worked more than 10 years in MEMS on development of filtration membranes and was involved in the start-up of Medspray.
