Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanocomposite-based biosensors have emerged as a promising platform for sensitive, selective, and rapid detection of a wide range of analytes in various fields, including healthcare, environmental monitoring, food safety, and diagnostics. Integrating nanomaterials with biorecognition elements has revolutionized the field of biosensing by enhancing the performance and functionality of sensing devices. This Special Issue aims to highlight the recent advances and perspectives in the development and application of nanocomposite-based biosensors.

Topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:

  • Design and synthesis of novel nanocomposite materials for biosensing applications.
  • Development of nanocomposite-based platforms for point-of-care diagnostics.
  • Integration of nanocomposites with biofunctional molecules (e.g., enzymes, antibodies, and aptamers) for enhanced biosensing.
  • Fabrication and characterization of nanocomposite-based sensors.
  • Applications of nanocomposite-based biosensors in healthcare, environmental monitoring, food safety, and other relevant fields.
  • Advances in signal amplification and signal transduction mechanisms in nanocomposite-based biosensors.
  • Biocompatibility and biostability of nanocomposite materials for long-term biosensing applications.
  • Challenges and future perspectives in the development of nanocomposite-based biosensors.

Authors are invited to submit original research articles, reviews, and perspectives that address the topics mentioned above or other related areas within the scope of this Special Issue. Submissions should present novel findings, or experimental or theoretical approaches, and demonstrate the potential impact of nanocomposite-based biosensors in advancing the field of biosensing.

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.
