Special Issue "Application of Paper-Based Analytical Devices"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2019
There is a growing need for low-cost technologies that can easily detect and monitor diseases and environmental contaminants in the field. Thus, microfluidic paper-based analyzers (μPAD) have attracted much attention because they are cheap, easy to use, and do not require external power. Recently, Martinez et al. reported the first μPAD for multiplexed chemical analysis. Even more recently, Park et al. reported a 3D printing method to improve the signal uniformity and sensitivity of the mPADs.
In this context, it is my pleasure to invite you to submit an article for a Special Issue dedicated to the subject of “2D- and 3D-microfluidic paper-based analytical devices (µPADs)”. All previously unpublished manuscripts covering all topics, including applications, fabrication, multiplex analysis, theoretical studies of flow in uPADs are welcome, as well as reviews and mini-review articles. I do hope that you accept this invitation and join in the continuing success of this area of expertise.

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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
