Natural polymer-derived scaffold material and methods for production thereof

The invention relates to a scaffold material comprising a carrier and embedded microbeads for use in tissue engineering applications such as soft tissues therapeutic treatment. The scaffold provides a short-term bulking effect coupled with a long-term functional activity. Both the carrier and the microbeads are substantially composed of natural or extracellular matrix-derived polymers, and the beads can comprise homogeneously distributed active agents, providing a regulated agent release along time. An aspect of the invention relates to a method for producing the microbeads of the invention by using an expressly designed microfluidic chip.
