Webinar Series: Microfluidics 101 with Dolomite – #11 Hydrogel particles production and applications in cell encapsulation


This free monthly series of webinars will bring you up to speed with microfluidics! From basic principles to advanced knowledge on each key component of a microfluidic system, we’ll discuss the mechanisms behind the technology and how to apply it to encapsulate and deliver drugs, APIs, and biological materials.

Microfluidics is defined as “the science and engineering of systems in which fluid behavior differs from conventional flow theory primarily due to the small length scale of the system. It deals with precise control and manipulation of fluids in micro and picolitre scales that are geometrically constrained to microfluidic devices with internal sizes ranging from approximately 1 to 1000 μm. Watch the 11th session of our webinar series which explores the production of hydrogel particles for cell encapsulation. 

Join us on every last Thursday of each month in 2021 for even more microfluidic know-how!

Droplet-based microfluidic systems have shown unparalleled advantages for the encapsulation of proteins, enzymes, bacteria or viruses. By precisely controlling the formation of the droplets, we can produce hydrogel beads or double emulsion droplets with well-defined sizes, shapes and morphologies, which can then be sorted on conventional Fluorescence Activated Cell Sorting (FACS) machines.
