Abstract

Multifunctional Envelope-type Nanodevice (MEND) is a promising gene delivery system. However, the application of MEND for the medical use has been prevented due to labor-intensive and time-consuming procedures in the preparation of MEND. In this paper, we report a microfluidic device which realizes to prepare MEND with narrow size distribution in 5 min (the conventional method needs 2 days). Our results strongly indicate that MEND prepared with our microfluidic device has a potential for medical use.
