• Devices to generate 20µm double emulsions or Water-Oil-Water droplets for analysis by Flow Cytometry or sorting by FACS
• The first chip has 3 inlets for (i) Cells (ii)Substrate and (iii) the carrier oil+ surfactant phase
• The second chip has 2 inlets for (i) the first emulsion and (ii) a carrier aqueous phase.

    The second chip should be rendered hydrophilic following the procedure detailed in the publication. First chip: flow rates were 1 μL/min total for the aqueous phases (cells and substrate) and 8 μL/min for the carrier oil phase. Seconde chip: start with 1µL/ min for the emulsion and 3µL/min for the aqueous phase. LvV, 2020
