“Dielectrophoresis is experiencing an exponential growth as one of the main microfluidic tools of choice. New applications and designs are constantly being developed to expand the potential of this powerful microscale technique. The remarkable response received for the recent Special Issues on Dielectrophoresis (Issues 17 and 18) confirms the powerful impact it has had on the field of microfluidics.” To follow on from this, we present here a Virtual Issue compiled of the 25 most-downloaded articles in the field (published over the last two years).
