Schematic of setup for the controlled assembly of vesicle networks of user-defined architectures. The presence of 0.75 M NaCl in the external solution yielded adhesive vesicles that could be manipulated in 3-D using an optical tweezer and a motorised stage. System components are not drawn to scale. Vesicle = c. 5 µm radius, laser beam waist = c. 1 µm. Scale bar = 10 µm
