Single-cell yolk-shell capsules with high biological activity and stability

The expansion of the global market for microbes and microbial products have been increasingly demanding the full exploitation of bacteria with high activity and stability. Single-cell yolk-shell nanoencapsulation, a novel technique recently reported by a scientist team based in China and Belgium, can endow living bacteria with a hierarchical ordered porous structure, significantly enhancing biological activity and stability for various nanobiotechnological functionalisation and applications.
