Microfluidics is a technology that allows precise control and manipulation of very small fluid flows, which translates to small amounts of reagents used more simply, and faster. The technologies are key in the development of novel applications in different fields, including drug discovery, drug delivery, in vitro diagnostics, chemical analysis and high-throughput screening. In the field of drug delivery, for example, micro and nanoparticle (e.g., polymeric, lipid) drug delivery systems provide superior control over the physicochemical characteristics of the final product. This Special Issue will address the new developments in the area of Microfluidics, including the development of efficient drug carrier particles, as rapid techniques for direct drug screening (e.g., plasma drug level monitoring), for dilution or mixing of pharmaceutical chemical reagents, and the formulation of microfluidic systems with self-contained reservoirs that provide continuous drug release over an extended period. Original research papers and review articles are welcomed.

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. Pharmaceutics 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.
