Hydrogel beads is a widely known technology in pharmaceutical or cosmetic development and production. The task of theses droplets is to encapsulate bioactive reagents in stable spheres. Later, they release that material at defined working points on the patient or consumer end.
This case study shall share the idea of generating alginate beads utilizing a microfluidic pressure driven flow setup based on piezo electric micropumps.

The set-up in this case study uses mp6 micropumps and the new mp-Multiboard2. We also use pressure-driven flow as the way to transport the liquids. Check out our Case Study and our video about this topic as well!
