From the AIP website for the journal:

Biomicrofluidics is an online-only journal from AIP Publishing designed to rapidly disseminate research that elucidates fundamental physicochemical mechanisms associated with microfluidic, nanofluidic, and molecular/cellular biophysical phenomena in addition to novel microfluidic and nanofluidic techniques for diagnostic, medical, biological, pharmaceutical, environmental, and chemical applications. As of 2013, Biomicrofluidics is the top non-review fluid physics journal indexed by Thomson Reuters.

“Research areas include, but are not limited to:

  • Microfluidic and nanofluidic actuation (electrokinetics, acoustofluidics, optofluidics, and magnetic Hall effect devices)
  • Biophysical transport and characterization (DNA, single protein, ion channel and membrane dynamics, cell motility and communication mechanisms, electrophysiology, and patch clamping)

The new helpful “LibrarySearch+ sidebar”
