A versatile platform for surface modification of microfluidic droplets

Abstract

To advance emulsion droplet technology, we synthesize functional derivatives of Pluronic F127 that can simultaneously act as surfactants and as reactive sites for droplet surface decoration. The amine-, carboxyl-, N-hydroxysuccinimide ester-, maleimide- and biotin-terminated Pluronic F127 allows ligand immobilization on single-emulsion or double-emulsion droplets via electrostatic adsorption, covalent conjugation or site-specific avidin–biotin interaction.
