We cordially invite you to submit a paper to this Special Issue of Micromachines entitled "Microfluidic Devices for Biosensing".
The field of microfluidics can be quite broad, with multiple aplications of the science and technology behind it. However, no matter the application, they all share the need for manipulating micro to picoliters of fluids. This has been particularly important for the field of sensors, and more specifically for biosensors and biodetection, which have taken microfluidics as an essential component to the developments towards lab-on-a-chip, point-of-care (POC), and organ-on-a-chip concepts.
This Special Issue aims to cover all aspects of fabrication of microfluidic-based devices, using all sorts of technologies, from conventional PDMS or paper-based devices to more modern additive manufacturing technologies for their application in biosensing. This Special Issue is particularly focused on applications in biodetection and biosensors but also on related areas for the development of a new generation of microfluidic devices such as valves, cryogeny, micro and nanodroplets generation, computing, etc.

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 1600 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.
