Issue 7 online! The latest HOT miniaturisation research and critical reviews on microfabricated organ systems, nucleic acid amplification and microfluidics in IVF

As highlighted on the outside front cover, physicists, engineers and chemists at the University of Illinois , USA, describe a new laser-based label-free resonant optical biosensor with high resolution and high sensitivity. The difference with this sensor is that they use a photonic crystal resonant reflector surface to introduce optical gain to the sensor from an external source via simulated emission. All of our cover articles are free to access for 6 weeks,* so you can read the full work now:

External cavity laser biosensor
Chun Ge, Meng Lu, Sherine George, Timothy A. Flood, Clark Wagner, Jie Zheng, Anusha Pokhriyal, J. Gary Eden, Paul J. Hergenrother and Brian T. Cunningham
DOI: 10.1039/C3LC41330F

On the inside front cover, researchers at California Institute of Technology, USA, and LeukoDx Inc., Israel, present a point-of-care test for leukocyte counting using a microflow cytometer and fluorescent dye. This method eliminated excessive dilution and sheath flow, giving a minimal needed sample volume.

Wendian Shi, Luke Guo, Harvey Kasdan and Yu-Chong Tai
DOI: 10.1039/C3LC41059E

Work from Tino Frank and Savaş Tay at ETH Zurich is featured on the inside back cover. To improve studies of cell signalling in vitro, this article introduces a simple cell culture platform that can produce programmable diffusion-based gradients using microfluidics based on modifying flow over time. Read it here:

Flow-switching allows independently programmable, extremely stable, high-throughput diffusion-based gradients
Tino Frank and Savaş Tay
DOI: 10.1039/C3LC41076E

The outside back cover highlights the work of Sung Gap Im at KAIST, South Korea. This article is about a doubly cross-linked nano-adhesive system (DCNA) and the team demonstrate fabrication of microfluidic devices with flexible and rigid substrates with high strength and stability. The flexible devices could be manipulated without delamination occurring.

In addition to the primary microfluidics research and high number of HOT articles in issue 7, there are also three critical reviews:

Microfabricated mammalian organ systems and their integration into models of whole animals and humans
Jong H. Sung, Mandy B. Esch, Jean-Matthieu Prot, Christopher J. Long, Alec Smith, James J. Hickman and Michael L. Shuler
DOI: 10.1039/C3LC41017J

Thinking big by thinking small: application of microfluidic technology to improve ART
J. E. Swain, D. Lai, S. Takayama and G. D. Smith
DOI: 10.1039/C3LC41290C

Nucleic acid amplification using microfluidic systems
Chen-Min Chang, Wen-Hsin Chang, Chih-Hung Wang, Jung-Hao Wang, John D. Mai and Gwo-Bin Lee
DOI: 10.1039/C3LC41097H
