Different cells show obvious heterogeneity in genetic and phenotypic properties that can differentially promote disease progression, tumor metastasis and drug resistance. Emerging single-cell analysis technologies open up a new avenue to profile individual cells and investigate what roles they play in these processes. Traditional single-cell analysis methods such as single-cell sequencing are mainly limited by cytogenetic analysis, and face the problems of low throughput, complex steps, and high price. Micro/nanofluidics (e.g., microfluidic chips) have the ability to pioneer the field of single-cell analysis, enabling multiple analysis of gene, protein, and cell behavior through accurate cell manipulation, the construction of on-chip biomimetic scenarios, etc. Meanwhile, the flexible structure design and convenient standardized preparation process of micro/nanofluidic devices bring distinct advantages for single-cell analysis, such as high throughput, high efficiency, high sensitivity, and low cost.
This Special Issue is soliciting original research articles and reviews on “Micro/Nanofluidics for Single-Cell Analysis”, mainly focusing on novel techniques and methods based on micro/nanofluidics, as well as corresponding new findings at the single-cell level. We are looking forward to your submissions.

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 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. Biosensors 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 2700 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.
