Abstract: Microencapsulation has shown high potential in various applications. It also represents a promising concept for cell therapies, where a robust encapsulation technology belongs to crucial factors for entering the clinics. This article focuses on vibration technology that among other technologies complies the most with diverse requirements for cell encapsulation. This technology is sufficiently versatile, however, the viscosity of extruded polymer solution is seen as its Achilles heel.

Keywords: Cell encapsulation; Vibration technology; Microencapsulation; Viscosity; Processing technologies
