Special Issue "Microsensors and Microchips: Fabrication, Characterization and Application"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 November 2023) | Viewed by 3059
Chemical microsensor and microchip-based sensors, particularly screen-printed microchips, have been attracting increasing attention in clinical, environmental, and pharmaceutical analysis. These disposable micron-scale chips with small sample volumes can gently manipulate fluid flow, thus providing more efficient and alternative tools in a broad range of applications, particularly in clinical, environmental and drug analysis. These microsensors have become more popular due to their simple operation, high throughput, parallel analysis, quick response and overall reduced costs, making it much easier to realize product transfer in practical applications. There are many merits offered by such miniaturized devises, including automation and integration feasibility and applicability with flow injection analysis as well as continuous monitoring technology. Recently, intensive efforts have been oriented towards microfabrication characterization and analytical applications of such small devices. The state of the art in this strategy comprises new fabrication methodology, novel sensing materials and versatile applications.
The goals of this Special Issue are to present high-quality and original contributions of scientists and researchers focused on microfabrication, the synthesis of new sensing materials and the realization of chemical microsensors, microelectrodes and screen-printed microchips. The applications of such devices in measuring biological, environmental and pharmaceutical species are also within the scope of this collection. This Special Issue also aims to gather recent developments in this research area and to highlight the recent trends and perspectives of such miniaturized devices.

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 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.
