Abstract

This paper reports the centrifuge-based synthesis method of monodisperse hydrogel microspheres possessing multiple compartments under ultra-high centrifugal gravity, and the demonstration of magnetic self-assembly of chain-structures using cellladen Janus-spheres. Our method, enabling gelification of droplets of sodium alginate solution into microparticles without oil, heat or UV, is easy to use, simple and biocompatible. The synthesis procedure takes only a few minutes and can be conducted on a lab-bench, using our Centrifuge-based Droplet Shooting Device (CDSD) and a tabletop centrifuge. The CDSD will be a valuable tool in various fields, such as drug delivery, biotechnology and tissue engineering.
