Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Microfluidic technology has become a very important biological and chemical analysis tool because of its advantages, such as low cost of samples and reagents, in situ real-time analysis, etc.; thus, microfluidics has been applied in many studies at the molecular and cellular levels. For cell research, because the dimension of the microchannel is greatly compatible with the magnitude (size) of the cells and can perfectly simulate the real in vivo environment of cells in vitro, it has become a new platform for the real-time detection and research of cells and single cells.
This Special Issue aims to collect the latest technological progress in microfluidic technology in the field of cell detection and research. We particularly encourage research in the following areas: (1) cancer cell capture and recognition; (2) cancer cell drug screening; (3) cell viability detection; (4) cell vitality evaluation; (5) optical and electrochemical cell detection; (6) electrical-impedance-based cell detection; (6) hematology analysis (red blood cells, platelets, white blood cells, clotting, etc.); and (7) rapid detection of sperm viability.
We welcome the submission of original research articles, reviews, mini-reviews and methods papers related to the following fields, but other relevant submissions are also welcome:
1) Optical-based cell detection technology;
2) Cell detection technology based on electrical impedance;
3) Study on cell sensors based on electrochemistry;
4) Capture and recognition of circulating tumor cells;
5) Cell vitality and viability assessment;
6) Cancer cell drug screening;
7) Platelet function test;
8) Bleeding and coagulation tests;
9) Sperm viability detection.

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.
