Controlled synthesis of micro multi-compartmental particles using a centrifuge droplet shooting device (CDSD) is reported. Sodium alginate solutions introduced in a multi-barreled capillary form droplets at the capillary orifice under ultrahigh gravity and gelify in a CaCl2 solution. The size, shape, and compartmentalization of the particles are controlled. Co-encapsulation of Jurkat cells and magnetic colloids into Janus particles is demonstrated. The Janus particles present sensitive reaction toward magnetic fields, while the viability of the encapsulated cells is 91%.
