An easy way for encapsulating islets in a controllable manner is the use of a coaxial bead generator. The basic principle of the instrument is the use of a coaxial air stream (2.8 – 3.0 L/min) to blow droplets (650µm – 1mm) from a needle tip into a gelling bath before they would fall due to gravity.
The encapsulator is equipped with two connections. One is used for the hose, which feeds the alginate (or other) solution. The other connection is meant for an air-hose. The alginate (or other) solution may be fed into the unit with a syringe pump. A magnetic stirrer can be placed underneath the gelling bath to keep the beads separated during gelling.
