The Science Partner Journal Cyborg and Bionic Systems is now considering submissions for a special issue entitled Advances in Intelligent Biomedical Microfluidics.


The advances of Intelligent Biomedical Microfluidics (IBM) represent an emerging and rapidly expanding interdisciplinary biomedical research field which combines biology, medicine, chemistry, computer science, materials, and engineering principles for rapid and precise perception, detection, diagnosis, and therapy of disease. IBM has the advantages of small sample size, high-integration, miniaturization, automation, high-throughput, low power consumption, less pollution, and intelligence which leads to less human intervention. It develops innovative medical devices, micro/nano-platforms, sensory systems, biological products, and informatics methods for disease prediction, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring. IBM, therefore, provides an important insight on precision medicine and biomedical engineering.

This special issue aims to provide an opportunity for researchers to contribute their most recent research and development in intelligent microfluidics and digital therapeutics. Topics of this special issue include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Microfluidics and biomedical lab-on-a-chip
  • Microfluidic Point-of-care Testing (POCT) and In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD)
  • Microfluidics for biological and chemical analysis
  • Microfluidics for single-cell and drug
  • Microfluidic sensing and detection
  • Microfluidics for liquid biopsy and molecular diagnosis
  • Intelligent digital therapeutics
  • Microfluidics for functional materials and biomedical applications
  • Organ-on-chips and model construction
