Microfluidics is quickly becoming a key technology in an expanding range of fields, such as medical sciences, biosensing, bioactuation, chemical synthesis, and more. This is helping to transform microfluidics from a promising R&D tool to commercially viable technology. Fuelling this expansion is the intensified focus on automation and enhanced functionality through integration of complex electrical, mechanical, photonic, sensing, and flow control elements. This Special Issue will highlight methods and emerging challenges with this new phase of microfluidic development with the goal of informing readers of the current state-of-the-art.
Authors are encouraged to submit novel research papers and reviews with areas of focus that include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Combining microfluidics with complex elements: MEMS, electronics/electrodes, parallelization, analytical probes
- Highly parallelized operations and automated analysis
- Novel packaging concepts for new applications: harsh/sensitive environments
- World-to-chip interfacing for complex fluid control and electrical interfacing
- Modelling/simulation issues related to microfluidic integration
- Implanted and remote/autonomous microfluidic solutions
- “Smart” fabrication materials and components

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. Sensors 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 1800 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.
