Optofluidics, Microfluidics and Nanofluidics: Special Issue on Cell manipulation and analysis in microfluidic chips



Paolo Minzioni, University of Pavia, Italy


This Special Issue will be dedicated to techniques for cell manipulation and analysis in microfluidic chips. 

While the recent advances in fabrication technologies allowed a significant reduction of sample and reagents volumes in biomedical analysis, thanks to the development of integrated microfluidic systems, the ability to manipulate and analyze cell in confined environments is still in its initial phase. As new possibilities and improvements are continuously produced, the aim of this special issue is to collect new results and emerging ideas, as well as critical analyses of the existing scientific literature.


The authors are kindly invited to submit their manuscripts via Editorial Managed system: http://www.editorialmanager.com/optof/default.aspx


New research results can be submitted both as rapid communications or regular research articles. Reviews, and mini-reviews, discussing the state of the art of specific topics are also welcome, but in that case it is suggested to agree first with the Editors about the review content.


All the papers will undergo peer-review, by a minimum of two expert reviewers, and will be published as open-access in case of acceptance. No Article Processing Fee will be charged for the papers belonging to this special issue.
