The present paper describes the production, using a microfluidic approach, of microparticles (constituted of cellulose acetate) and O/W emulsions (constituted of PEG-6 corn oil droplets). The general production strategy is based on the formation of water-in-oil multiphase flow by a focusing mechanism (X-junction chip). The innovative aspect of the work is represented by the fabrication procedure for the microfluidic chip production. The chips were designed and fabricated by a low cost approach using a shrinkable biocompatible polymer
