The development of microfluidics technology allowed to revisit the fabrication of emulsions and offers now an efficient tool for making well calibrated emulsion droplets. In
addition, to capability to encapsulate various components, to add process steps in serial, to parallelize droplet production and operations opened a new avenue for tailoring
microparticles from emulsion droplet template. These functional microparticles find application in biotechnology where a precise control of particles features, like size or binding
capacity, is needed.
