Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue will publish selected papers from the 1st International Conference on Microfluidic Handling Systems (http://www.utwente.nl/ewi/mfhs2012/), 10 to 12 October 2012, Enschede, The Netherlands. Manuscripts submitted to journal Micromachines should be extended at least 40% compared with the conference one.

Worldwide, accurate handling (e.g. dosing, measurement and control) of small and extremely small mass flow rates of both gases and liquids is becoming more and more important, driven by numerous economically important applications in for instance semiconductor industry, analytical instrumentation, food, pharmacy, energy, bioanalytical systems, and micro reaction systems.

The focus of this conference is mainly on the technology, components, devices and systems that enable the application and biology in microfluidic systems. We invite submission of papers on systems and devices for accurate handling (e.g. dosing, measurement and control) of (extremely) small mass flow rates of both gases and liquids, and corresponding measurement and control principles:

  • Thermal, ultrasonic and Coriolis principles for flow measurement
  • The piezo-electric, electromagnetic and electrostatic principles for flow control
  • Electronic instrumentation
  • Application proposals
  • Innovative methods in calibration equipment and methodology
  • Micro- and nanomachining
  • Device characterization

The topics include but are not limited to:

  • Sensors: flow, pressure, viscosity, temperature, conductivity, heat capacity, density
  • Actuators: valves, pumps, mixers, droplet generators
  • Interfaces: electronic instrumentation, interconnections, assembly, technology
  • Fluidic control systems: mass flow controllers, precision mixing, dosing and dispensing, calibration
  • Applications: gas chromatographs, liquid chromatographs, medical analyses, micro reaction systems, bio-analytical systems
