Microgel composite

Microgel composite

Visualization shows the microgel network architecture in fibrin–microgel composite materials. Confocal microscopy images of fluorescently labeled microgels (shown in blue and red) and fibrin (shown in green) demonstrate that at a critical volume fraction, the microgels form an interconnected tunnel network within the fibrous fibrin matrix. Microgels are tightly packed and only slightly jiggle around within the microgel domains. (Credit: Alison Douglas)
