Fig. 8

a Schematic diagram of the generation of Ca-alginate droplets in DMC using a cross-junction. The T-junction served to introduce DMC as a spacer to increase the distance between droplets. The device is composed of polyether ether ketone (PEEK) junctions and Teflon-like tubing (IDEX Health and Science). Micrograph of droplets observed at point A when b droplet generation was not disturbed by introducing the spacer and c when it was disturbed
