Schematic diagram of the custom-made bubble generator. Controlled alteration of air bubble number and size can be obtained by the variation of airflow, saline flow, diameter, and position of the capillary within the outer tube. Automatic recording and determination of bubble number and size is performed using a high-speed optical image capturing system connected to a computer with custom-made software.
