Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue focuses on biosensors based on isothermal nucleic acid amplification strategies for food safety, environmental monitoring, and clinical diagnostic research. Isothermal nucleic acid amplification does not require expensive variable temperature equipment, can be performed under isothermal conditions or at room temperature, and is suitable for rapid, in situ analysis and point-of-care testing. To this end, the purpose of this Special Issue is to collect original papers and reviews to show the development of isothermal nucleic acid amplification strategy-based biosensors and their innovative applications in related fields, new challenges and development prospects.

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.
