LOC Issue 7 available now

Issue & front coverIssue 7 is now available online, and the outside front cover features a HOT article by Aldo Jesorka and colleagues at Chalmers University of Technology, describing their use of a hydrodynamically confined microflow pipette as an optimized non-contact open-volume microfluidic tool, to overcome the common restriction of using closed microchannels.

Issue 7 inside front coverThe inside front cover is a Critical Review by David Beebe et al., discussing the use of PDMS and polystyrene by researchers working at the interface of microfluidics and cell biology research:

Engineers are from PDMS-land, Biologists are from Polystyrenia
Erwin Berthier, Edmond W. K. Young and David Beebe
DOI: 10.1039/C2LC20982A

Another HOT article in this issue is by Serge G. Lemay and colleagues at the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology, University of Twente, reporting on their study of the response time of nanofluidic thin-layer cells as electrochemical sensors, and suggested means of improving that time.
