Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Real-time bioprocess monitoring is essential for efficient bioprocess operation and effective bioprocess control. In contrast with offline, retrospective, and time-consuming reference analytical methods, which do not provide a real-time knowledge of process performance, the use of fast, non-destructive, robust, and sensitive online sensors have great potential for real-time monitoring of key bioprocess parameters, significantly reducing the time required for bioprocess control and optimization.

The Special Issue “Breakthroughs in Real-Time Bioprocess Monitoring” aims to highlight novel strategies to monitor bioprocesses using real-time sensors. Potential topics of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Wastewater treatment;
  • Waste valorization;
  • Pharmaceutical bioprocesses;
  • Stem cell bioprocesses;
  • UV-Vis spectroscopy;
  • NIR spectroscopy;
  • Raman spectroscopy;
  • NMR spectroscopy;
  • Flourescence spectroscopy;
  • Flow cytometry;
  • Biosensors;
  • Microfluidics and microanalysis;
  • Optical sensors.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
