Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Sensors are becoming smaller and smaller every year, and new applications of sensors are being developed. Many of these sensors are designed to work with liquid samples, such as in the medical, environmental monitoring, and quality control fields. These miniature sensors are thus integrated with microfluidic systems that often perform sample preparation steps before delivering the prepared sample to the sensing portion of the device. Many future sensors will be multiplexed with the ability to sense multiple analytes simultaneously. These integrated devices will be the future of many liquid based sensors and will provide a wide range of new functionality allowing penetration into broad range of commercial markets and applications.

This current special issue will address microfluidic sensors and integration of sensors with microfluidic systems. In addition, multiplexed microfluidic sensors, the systems and packaging aspects of microfluidic sensors, and the integration of microfluidic sensors into more complex, complete devices are appropriate topics. We also solicit review articles and original research papers on new microfluidic sensing and actuating concepts, which are especially suited for systems integration or which make use of recently discovered phenomena.
