Title: Parallelizable microfluidic dropmakers with multilayer geometry for the generation of double emulsions

Abstract

We present a multilayer dropmaker geometry that enables the modular fabrication of microfluidic devices containing precisely patterned channel surface wettability. The platform is used for the scalable production of uniform double emulsion drops.
