Special Issue in Biosensors: Biosensors for Neurodegenerative Diseases and Related Disorders
In 1962, the first enzyme-based biosensor was introduced. Since then, the development of biosensors has been remarkable. This diffusion is associated with a high sensitivity in monitoring, possibly in real time, as well as the possibility of miniaturization, which makes the biosensors applicable in different matrices, but above all the low production costs. The continuous development of biosensors concerns all aspects of their technology: the search for newer and more effect signal transduction methods; the use of more selective bio-elements towards the monitored analytes; and the use of polymers and containment networks in order to obtain ever greater selectivity and sensitivity, particularly in complex matrices such as biological samples. Biosensors have become a very important tool in diagnostics, drug discovery, and biomedicine as well.
Thus, the present Special Issue will mainly focus on possible new biosensor configurations, concentrating on biorecognition layers, transduction principles, and the use of new containment networks for the biosensor components, in relation to diagnostic applications for the recognition of important biomarkers in real samples.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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. Biosensors is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2700 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.
