One of the greatest challenges of researchers using microfluidics is to develop novel microfluidic devices for the enhancement of their capabilities in biology and medical research. Many biomedical microfluidic devices have been miniaturized to replace conventional bioassays and diagnostics, featuring high bioassay performance, high system integration, improved potential for automation and control, small volume of samples and reagents, reduced cost, greater reliability and sensitivity, disposability and shorter bioassay times.
In this Special Issue, we solicit review articles and original research papers addressing technical challenges on developing microfluidic devices for biomedical and diagnostics applications. The papers can cover all aspects of biomedical microfluidic devices including, but not limited to, recent developments in the following areas: biomedical microfluidic devices; DNA, protein, cell, organism, tissue and organ on chip; diagnostics and theranostics; drug discovery and delivery; lab on chip (LOC); manipulation of biomolecules and biofluids; micro total analysis (mTAS); miniaturization of bioassays; and point of care (POC) devices.
Authors are invited to contact the guest editors prior to submission if they are uncertain whether their work falls within the general scope of this Special Issue on "Biomedical Microfluidic 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 papers will be 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 1200 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.
