Microencapsulation of living cells in semi-permeable membranes with covalently cross-linked layers.

Abstract

Microencapsulation in semi-permeable membranes protects transplanted cells against immune destruction. Microcapsule strength is critical. We describe a method to microencapsulate living cells in alginate-poly-L-lysine (PLL)-alginate membranes with covalent links between adjacent layers of microcapsule membranes, while preserving the desired membrane… (More)
