Lab on chip is a multidisciplinary research area related to the novelty in both: (i) the device physics, engineering, and materials; and (ii) applications in biology, chemistry, medicine, at the micro- and nano-scale. This special topic session will explore the novel micro- and nano-technologies and fundamental principles, and significant biological, chemical, medical, environmental and energy applications.

The topics of this session include but are not limited to

  • Micro- and nano-fabrication (including 3D printing, thin films)
  • Micro- and nano-fluidics (in continuous and segmented multiphase flow, droplet microfluidics, new liquids)
  • Micro- and nano-systems (sensor, actuator, reaction)
  • Micro- and nano-separation technologies (molecular and cellular sorting)
  • Micro- and nano-total analysis system (µTAS, nTAS)
  • Digital microfluidics
  • Sample preparation
  • Imaging and detection
  • Nucleic acid biotechnology and analysis (DNA and RNA sequencing, genotyping, gene manipulation)
  • Protein analysis (proteomics and metabolomics for targeted and global analysis)
  • Medical diagnostics (for example point of care and molecular)
  • Medical devices and treatments (including implantable and wireless)
  • Drug development (screening and delivery)
  • Cells, tissues, organs on chip and integrated tissue engineering
  • 3D cell culture
  • Single cell analysis
  • Cell and organism motility and interactions
  • Systems and synthetic biology and medicine
  • Energy, biofuels, fuel extraction
  • Environmental and food monitoring for health and security
