In article 1700975, David A. Weitz and co-workers describe the encapsulation of enzymes within microcapsules. The ultrathin polymeric shell is formed in a single-step microfluidic approach using a glass capillary microfluidic device. An osmotic shock triggers rapid release of encapsulated enzymes with enhanced activity, demonstrating the potential of the system for drug delivery.
