In the core, in the shell, or both: a microfluidic device is used to design magnetic vesicles (liposomes and polymersomes) through chemical modification of the nanoparticle surface. Hydrophilic, hydrophobic and fluorescent quantum dot nanoparticles are used for elaborating the vesicles. Hybrid vesicles are easily obtained with a very high yield and excellent monodispersity.
