Controlled Microencapsulation of Mammalian Cells

The present invention is directed to an automated device and method to prepare polyelectrolyte microcapsules for controlled microencapsulation of mammalian cells. This device and method delivers precision control of volume of microcapsules at picoliter scale with narrow size distribution and with controlled thickness of the capsule membrane. Microcapsules generated in this invention are useful for culturing mammaliam cells. Particularly, the present invention describes a method for microencapsulation of stem cells and a culture method for the expansion of stem cells using microcapsules.
