Special Issue "Microfluidic Paper-Based Analytical Devices"
A special issue of Separations (ISSN 2297-8739).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2015)
In recent years, the paper substrate has appeared as a powerful platform for microfluidic applications. Since the pioneering work of the Whitesides’s group, the use of this substrate material has received growing attention. In this context, it is our pleasure to invite you to submit an article for a Special Issue dedicated to the subject of “microfluidic paper-based analytical devices (µPADs)” for which we serve as Guest Editors. This issue is focused on the dissemination of news on the latest advances, including applications, fabrication technologies, integration of analytical techniques or any similar innovative achievement. Reviews and mini-review articles are also welcome. We do hope that you accept this invitation and join in the continuing success of this area of expertise.
