Figure 2

The morphology of APA microcapsules and the viability of various microencapsulated cells at 1 week or 4 weeks after microencapsulation (EB/Calcein AM staining). (a) The morphology of APA microcapsules. (A) indicates the microcapsules without cells and (B) indicates the microcapsules containing the BMSCs. Scale: 100 μm. (b) The viability of different microencapsulated tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells at 1 week and 4 weeks (EB/Calcein AM staining). The green fluorescence indicates live cells, and the red fluorescence indicates dead cells. Left: BMSCs, middle: ADSCs, and right: SMSCs. Scale: 20 μm. (c) The viability of different microencapsulated cells lines at 1 week and 4 weeks (EB/Calcein AM staining). The green fluorescence indicates live cells, and the red fluorescence indicates dead cells. Left: C3H10T1/2, middle: C2C12, and right: NIH/3T3. Scale: 20 μm.
