Engineers use droplet microfluidics to create glucose-sensing microbeads

Standard methods to monitor glucose levels require invasive and time-consuming handling of the cell culture. A team of engineers is developing an alternative approach that takes advantage of new microfluidic techniques. In a continuous and controlled process, the researchers created small droplets of polymer that encapsulated pairs of fluorescing molecules.
