BioiniciaBioinicia S.L. (BIOINICIA) is currently an engineering company dedicated to the development and manufacturing of equipment to fabricate novel and nanomaterials. Additionally, BIOINICIA offers consulting regarding materials and process development services to universities, research centres and industry. BIOINICIA was founded in June 2009 as a consulting company in the field of equipment engineering for nanotechnology and became a technological SME in 2012 after incorporating scientists and technologists, engineers and managers from different fields and countries.

Our mission is to develop, manufacture and commercialise products and services based on hydrodynamic atomisation processes (HDA), having a special focus on the Food, Pharma, Biomedical and Cosmetic industries. Our company vision is to become a worldwide leader in the development, manufacturing and marketing of products and services using our own proprietary HDA technology. Our engineering brand Fluidnatek® was created in 2012. This brand comprises the design and fit for purpose manufacturing of a unique range of laboratory, pilot plant and pilot line equipment.

At the end of 2016 Bioinicia built the first worldwide GMP industrial manufacturing Plant based in electrospinning dedicated to Pharma and Biomedical products. During the first mid of 2017 it will get certified GMP and ISO 13485.
