Special Issue Information

Dear Researchers,

We are opening this Special Issue entitled “Micromanipulation in Microfluidics”, which aims to cover recent progress in this field.

Microfluidics is becoming a key technology in an expanding range of fields, including medical sciences, biomanipulation, biosensing, chemical and biological processes, and more. This Special Issue will focus on current emerging methods involving microfluidics for micromanipulation of particles, droplets, cells, and other submicronic elements.

Authors are encouraged to submit novel research papers and reviews, with areas of focus that include but are not limited to the following:

1) Combining microfluidics with external systems for sorting purposes: Magnetophoresis, dielectrophoresis, acoustophoresis, hydrodynamic strategies, optical tweezers;

2) Droplet technologies for biological manipulation;

3) Modeling/simulation issues related to manipulation in microfluidics;

4) Microfluidic devices and methods for tissue engineering;

5) “Smart” fabrication materials and components.

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.
