We investigate the impact of droplet culture conditions on cell metabolic state by determining key metabolite concentrations in S. cerevisiae cultures in different microfluidic droplet culture formats. Control of culture conditions is critical for single cell screening in droplets, as cell metabolic state directly affects production yields in cell factories. Metabolite profiling provides a more nuanced estimate of cell state compared to proliferation studies alone. We show that the choice of droplet incubation format has an impact on cell proliferation and metabolite production. Furthermore, we engineered a new better oxygenated droplet incubation format, with retained droplet stability and size.
