Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We cordially invite you to submit a paper to this Special Issue of Micromachines, entitled "Microfluidic Devices for Biosensing."

Microfluidics is a vast field with numerous applications for the science and technology underpinning it. Regardless of the application, they all need the manipulation of micro- to picoliters of fluid. This has been particularly important in the field of sensors, and more specifically in biosensors and biodetection, which have incorporated microfluidics as an essential component in the development of lab-on-a-chip, point-of-care (POC), and organ-on-a-chip concepts.

This Special Issue aims to cover all aspects of the fabrication of microfluidic-based devices using a variety of technologies, ranging from conventional PDMS or paper-based devices to more modern additive manufacturing technologies for biosensing applications. This Special Issue focuses on biodetection and biosensor applications, as well as related areas for the development of a new generation of microfluidic devices, such as valves, cryogeny, micro- and nanodroplet generation, computing, etc.

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. Micromachines 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 2600 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.
