Microfluidics has risen to a new zone of exploration because of its application in numerous fields. The integration of microfluidics and sensor technology bridges gaps in heat transfer areas, the medical field, and the chemical industry at the microscale flow level. This paper reviews the latest work conducted in microfluidics with the help of microflow parameter measurements in microfluidic applications, microflow sensor inventions, novel microflow pathway design, and an assessment of the keyway of fluid behavior in microchannels. The emphasis is on highlighting a significant part of recent research on developing microfluidics applications using the previously explored microflow characteristic measurements. The details of heat transfer, blending, and sorting, along with different medical applications, including drug delivery, inferred that heat transfer is the most explored application domain. Comparing newly evolving microflow sensors will make the sensor selection easy for the user’s required microflow conditions. The effects of microchannel geometry and channel wall parameters on different microflow characteristic measurements are identified. This study will enhance the understanding of the performance of microflow systems by providing new flexibility in microfluidics. The study of microflow parameter measurements is reviewed in more depth, making its way for future microfluidic application developments.
