Special Issue "Paper-Based Microfluidic Devices and Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 February 2024 | Viewed by 4491
Interests: technologies; device development; microfluidics; imaging
Paper-based microfluidic analytical devices have improved substantially over the past decade by incorporating new components and materials for the point-of-care diagnosis of different diseases as well as the on-site sensitive detection of pollutants in the environment and contaminants and toxins in foods.
The word “paper” in this context refers to any porous and flexible material.
For this Special Issue we invite original research articles and comprehensive reviews on the following and related topics:
- New components for fluidic actuators for control of capillary flow and fluid mixing.
- Innovative detection methods and protocols at molecular and protein levels for biological and chemical reagents.
- Multiplexed detection methods.
- Innovative applications in point-of-care diagnostics, on-site environmental measurements, and clinical and demographic studies.
- Smart readers for quantitative measurements, communication and control of the ambient conditions at the reaction site.
- Coupled mathematical modeling of fluid flow with on-chip porous structures and biological or chemical reactions.
- Autonomous sensor operation for minimal user involvement.

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.
