This report demonstrates the use of a microfluidic system for formation of biocompatible particles of pectin gel, encapsulation of nanoparticles and the temporal profiles of their release. Also discussed are the use of various cross-linking agents, including a range of calcium salts and protons. The results suggest that it is possible to control the profile of release via a judicious choice of concentrations of pectin and cross-linking ions.

The full article is published online in the journal Biomicrofluidics and is free to access.
