Generation of W/O (water in oil) microdroplets by a microfluidic droplet generator. a Microphotograph of microdroplets generated by a microfluidic droplet generator. Scale bar: 50 μm. b Distribution of the microdroplet diameters. The overall variation coefficient is 3.69%. c A bright-field microscopy image showing B. coagulans (highlighted by white arrows) being encapsulated in microdroplets. Scale bar: 50 μm. d Initial number of cells per droplet. More than 500 droplets were investigated immediately after generation. The number and percentage of droplets containing 0, 1 and more than 1 cells are listed
