Abstract Conventional alginate/poly-L-ornithine (AP) membranes used to immunoisolate foreign tissue transplants fail in long-term transplantations of immortal cell lines. We have developed a novel layer-by-layer (LbL) membrane using polystyrene sulfonate and polyallylamine hydrochloride (PSS/PAH) on top of the coherent AP membrane. Assembly of the LbL membrane was followed by electrophoresis, and the surface morphologies and structure were characterized and examined by cryo-scanning electron microscope and transmission electron microscopy. Unlike the standard AP membrane, the LbL membrane withstood the internal pressure generated by continuous cell proliferation of microencapsulated HEK-293 and Min-6 cells. The new membrane did not affect insulin secretion or diffusion by Min-6 cells. © 2008 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Biomed Mater Res, 2009
