Microfluidics: droplet based microfluidic generation of synthetic cells

Droplet microfluidics for assembly of endomembrane multicompartments

"By using electrostatic interactions as driving force to assemble vesicles, the droplet-stabilized method was recently applied to reconstitute and encapsulate proteins, or compartments, inside giant unilamellar vesicles (GUVs) to act as minimal synthetic cells. However, the droplet-stabilized approach exhibits low production efficiency associated with the...
