Special Issue "3D Printed Microfluidic Devices and Its Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2019).
In recent years, 3D printing has developed rapidly, driven by the exponential growth in consumer demand for cost-effective, customised manufacturing options. Consumers can access 3D printing using online 3D printing services and the rapid rise in high quality consumer-grade 3D printers. 3D printing has also been adopted in scientific research for the manufacturing of customised parts and as an alternative microfabrication approach. The focus of this Special Issue is on insights and advancements of 3D printing in microfabrication, with a focus on the developments that have allowed for the fabrication of micro-and millifluidic devices to replace processes ordinarily executed on the laboratory bench. Of special interest are devices that show advanced functionality through the use of 3D design and/or material science, and advances that improved biocompatibility. In addition to the dissemination of technological breakthroughs of original work in the form of short communications and full papers, emerging investigators and pioneers are also invited to contribute commentaries, perspectives and insightful reviews on related topics.

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. Micromachines 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 1400 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.
