Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2023) | Viewed by 425
Interests: microfluidic technology; nanomaterials; cell analysis
Cell analysis is an essential strategy for better understanding life activities and giving biological insights into life processes. With inherent merits in flexible design, microscale of operation, high throughput, easy automation, and cost-effective manner, microfluidic chips are crucial tools in the cell analysis field. The explosive development of microfluidics in recent decades has comprised novel theoretical, experimental, and applied progress in cell analysis, organ–chip, and biomedical application on microfluidic platforms. Emphasis has been placed on labs on a chip such as optical, electrical, acoustic, and magnetic techniques. Focus has also been given on relative applications in biomimetics, drug screening, biomolecular detection, cell analysis, and bacterial analysis.
We invite papers covering different topics, from pure, fundamental research to more applied demonstrations and integrated case studies, including:
- Cost-effective microchip design in cell analysis or bacterial analysis.
- Advanced methods for cell analysis or bacterial analysis.
- Integrated organ systems.
- The experimentation and mechanisms of microchips for cell analysis or bacterial analysis.
- Fundamental and coupled multiphysics modelling and multiscale applications.
- Advanced cell/bacterial analysis: digital image analysis and machine learning.
- Kinematics and dynamics for fluid flow.
- The development and application of biosensors.
- Automated microchips in drug design, material discovery, and medical diagnosis.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Biosensors is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
