Photomicrograph of CRFK cell-enclosing microcapsules prepared from a photopolymerizable polysaccharide which was chemically-derivatized from a natural polysaccharide via irradiation with a visible light source. Diameters of the cell-enclosing microcapsules can be controlled and a low-cost LED device was used as the visible light source.
