Article
Microfluidics allows to accurately control the synthesis of microparticles for specific applications, where size and morphology play an important role. In this work, we introduce microfluidic chip design with dedicated extraction and gelation sections allowing to prepare hydrogel particles in size range of a red blood cell. The influence of the ext...
Article
The fabrication of alginate hydrogel microparticles with embedded liposomes and magnetic nanoparticles for radiofrequency controlled release of encapsulated chemical cargo was considered. An extractive gelation process was implemented in a microfluidic device, which enabled the production of uniform composite microparticles of dimensions comparable...

... This enables a considerable reduction of the ecological impact of research and development, and potentially increases the rate of production of new formulations. Drop microreactors have been successfully used for activities including the measurement of kinetic constants of chemical and biochemical reactions [2][3][4], drug-protein association constants [5], cell screening [6][7][8], synthesis of nanoparticles [9][10][11] and hydrogel particles [12][13][14]. ...
... Therefore, dissolving microdroplets show great promise in their applicability as miniature reactors for solvent-diffusion-driven crystallization to produce protein crystals or solid drug dosages [30,31]. Furthermore, diffusion of water into the surrounding oil phase on a microfluidic chip has been used to create hydrogel microparticles with a homogeneous and modifiable size distribution [32]. ...
