Hagfish slime is an ultra dilute, elastic and cohesive hydrogel that deploys within milliseconds in cold seawater from a glandularly secreted exudate. The slime is made of long keratin-like fibers and mucin-like glycoproteins that span a network which entraps water and acts as a defense mechanism against predators. Unlike other hydrogels, the slime only(More)
We present a microfluidic-based method allowing for the controlled production of lipid particles with encapsulated magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs). Within the same device, the magnetic properties of the composite particles are tested as they flow downstream. The effect of the fluid properties and flow parameters on the size of the microparticles containing(More)
The development of future technologies for food production needs multidisciplinary and integrating views taking into account the chain from the consumer all the way back to the raw material production. The consumer expects tasty, safe, nutritious, high-quality food. Freshness and convenience are other emerging demands. Complexity is thus the hallmark of(More)
