This overview chapter summarizes the content of a tutorial given at the 2018 edition of the Forum on Specification and Design Languages. The aim of the tutorial was to introduce the technology of microfluidic devices, which gained significant interest in the recent past, as well as corresponding design challenges to a community focused on design automation and corresponding specification/design languages. By this, the overview presents a starting point for researchers and engineers interested in getting involved in this area.
