Abstract

In this paper, a new method to form liposomes in microfluidic device is presented. We demonstrated a novel formation method of liposomes by using counter-current flows in an asymmetric microfluidic device. We revealed that the counter-current flows enabled the liposome formation, which weren't based on diffusive mechanism of organic solvent and the control of size and size distribution of liposomes. We investigated the formation efficiency of liposomes of counter-current flows and co-current flows.
