An urgent communication from Lothar Schmid and Thomas Franke at University of Augsburg, Germany, and Harvard University, USA, is featured on the outside front cover, in which a surface acoustic wave is applied to control droplet size in real time:

SAW-controlled drop size for flow focusing
Lothar Schmid and Thomas Franke
DOI: 10.1039/C3LC41233D

The inside front cover illustrates the work of researchers in New Zealand and Beijing led by Wenhui Wang who investigate locomotion metrics and muscular forces of C. elegans in one microfluidic assay:

On-chip analysis of C. elegans muscular forces and locomotion patterns in microstructured environments
Shazlina Johari, Volker Nock, Maan M. Alkaisi and Wenhui Wang
DOI: 10.1039/C3LC41403E

Issue 9 includes one Tutorial Review on using microfluidics to study neurotransmitters from Callie Croushore and Jonathan Sweedler at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA, and one Critical Review discussing micronanofabrication techniques:

Microfluidic systems for studying neurotransmitters and neurotransmission
Callie A. Croushore and Jonathan V. Sweedler
DOI: 10.1039/C3LC41334A

Fabrication and multifunction integration of microfluidic chips by femtosecond laser direct writing
Bin-Bin Xu, Yong-Lai Zhang, Hong Xia, Wen-Fei Dong, Hong Ding and Hong-Bo Sun
DOI: 10.1039/C3LC50160D

The high quality research published in Issue 9 includes a HOT article from Paul Kenis et al. again at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA, which describes a new microfluidic platform for the screening of salt forms of pharmaceuticals:

Microfluidic Platform for Evaporation-based Salt Screening of Pharmaceutical Parent compounds
Sachit Goyal, Michael R. Thorson, Cassandra L. Schneider, Geoff G. Z. Zhang, Yuchuan Gong and Paul J. A. Kenis
DOI: 10.1039/C3LC41271G
