The combination of hydrogel chemistry and fiber morphology provides an ideal platform for the encapsulation of cells for many large-scale applications. A microfluidic device is used to continuously produce hydrogel fibers of various sizes encapsulating viable bacteria. Within the fiber shaping microchannel, cells are localized in the hydrodynamically constrained pre-gel, and upon exposure to light, a continuous biohybrid fiber forms.
