A simple and cheap approach for the fabrication of fully biodegradable and biocompatible self-rolled tubes, whose folding can be triggered by temperature, is developed. Depending on design, the films can either irreversibly fold at elevated temperature, or fold at room temperature and irreversibly unfold at elevated temperature. These films are suitable for the encapsulation of living cells.
