Cellular heterogeneity is a fundamental feature of most biological systems, and microfluidic technologies are enabling its precision characterization for the first time. A key feature that enables this, is the ability of microfluidic devices to efficiently isolate and perform molecular analysis on single cells. Another key feature is the potential of these systems to scale to the analysis of large populations. In this Special Issue, we invite research papers, short communications, and review articles focused on microfluidic techniques enabling for single cell analysis, with a special emphasis on methods for scalable molecular analysis of single cells.

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 1800 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.
