Preparation of size tunable giant vesicles from cross-linked dextran(ethylene glycol) hydrogels

Author affiliations

Abstract

We present a novel chemically cross-linked dextran–poly(ethylene glycol) hydrogel substrate for the preparation of dense vesicle suspensions under physiological ionic strength conditions. These vesicles can be easily diluted for individual study. Modulating the degree of cross-linking within the hydrogel network results in tuning of the vesicle size distribution.
