Summary Microspheres and microcapsules have very broad applications in various fields, especially in those of biotechnology and biopharmaceuticals, as targeting drug-delivery carriers, separation media for protein, peptide, DNA, and so forth. It is a big challenge to design and prepare microspheres and microcapsules of different sizes and structures from various materials and develop new techniques. This book focuses on new microspheres and microcapsules specifically designed and prepared for application in the fields of biotechnology and biopharmaceuticals involving bioreaction, bioseparation, biofor
