Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The aim of microfluidic-based biosensors is to provide rapid, cost-effective, easy-to-use, portable, and accurate diagnostic tools for resource-limited settings. The integration of microfluidic technology with biosensors facilitates real-time assays using smaller sample volumes. Lab-based tests can be performed using such biosensors at home and in other POC settings. This can have revolutionizing impact in the healthcare sector.

Microfluidic-based biosensors have broad scope as such sensors can detect various analytes such as proteins, nucleic acids, and small molecules. It is also possible to utilize these sensors for pathogen detection. These microfluidic-based biosensors can also be used to monitor the progression of disease and treatment monitoring.  This special issue seeks articles on the recent developments in the area of microfluidic-based biosensors for POC disease diagnostic applications.

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.
