6th Workshop on Microfluidics, State University of Campinas, Brazil

Invited keynote talk “Lab, Cells and Organ on a Chip” by Dr. Albert van den Berg (University of Twente, The Netherlands)

The 6th Workshop on Microfluidics was held at the Convention Center of UNICAMP (State University of Campinas) in Campinas, Sao Paulo (Brazil), from 20-22 July, 2016. Since 2011, the workshop has brought together young students, researchers, and companies from different states of Brazil to discuss topics related to fundamentals, fabrication technologies, innovations, and applications in microfluidic science. This field has been spread out around different regions of Brazil presenting outstanding contributions for microfabrication and microfluidic technologies.

The event was supported by the Royal Society of Chemistry for the fourth time. Prof Dosil P. de Jesus (UNICAMP), member of the 6th Workshop on Microfluidics scientific board, presented the poster competition awards, sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Lab on a Chip and Analytical Methods journals.

The winner of the Analytical Methods Poster Competition was Gabriela B. Almeida, from State University of Campinas, for her work “Microfluidic Devices Combining Dielectrophoresis Trapping and Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy”.

Gabriela F. Giordano, from The Brazilian Nanotechnology National Laboratory (LNNano), Campinas, was the winner of the Lab on a Chip Poster Competition for her work “Gravity-Assisted Distillation on a Chip: a Novel Concept for Sample Preparation in Microfluidics”.

Call for Papers: Themed issue on the analysis of microplastics in the environment

You are invited to contribute to the upcoming Analytical Methods themed issue showcasing the latest discoveries and developments in the analysis of microplastics in the environment.

Guest Edited by Professors Richard Thompson (Plymouth University, UK), Fiona Regan (Dublin City University, Ireland) and Chelsea Rochman (University of California Davis, USA) this upcoming themed issue will highlight the most outstanding work in the analysis of microplastics in the environment, and also provide some insight into the newly emerging work in this important area of research.

Microplastics, small pieces of plastic litter, have been reported in marine habitats worldwide and are present in a range of diverse media (e.g., sediment, water, biota). Because microplastics have only recently been described, the methodology to extract, quantify and characterize the debris remains inconsistent. Increasingly, management agencies and academic scientists are calling for harmonization of methods so that data can be compared and/or synthesized across studies.

For your article to be considered for this themed issue we must receive your manuscript by August 26th 2016.

Communications, Full Papers and Review articles are welcomed, if you are interested in submitting an article for this themed issue please contact us to let us know.
