The recent developments in the visualization of target molecules have significantly contributed not only to a wide range of scientific applications, including cell biology and monitoring, but also to industry fields, including disease and body fluid diagnosis and chemical sensing in environment, which are related to human life. There are two main fields for advanced biosensors for visual detection, including the development of sensing probes and analytical devices. A recent research trend for advanced sensing probe is the visualization of on-demand single targets from complex components by specifically interacting with the analyte and sensing probe, providing high sensitivity and selectivity. Additionally, a recent trend for advanced analytical devices is the miniaturization of the devices, which enables a low cost, portability, small volume usage, multiple and high-throughput assays, and the improvement of sensitivity and selectivity.
The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight the recent advances in sensing probes and devices. We invite experts engaged in various fields of biosensing, including colorimetric assay based on organic and inorganic materials, visualization via chemical and physical approaches, optoelectronic nose, photonic crystal, optical devices, microfluidic devices, and paper-based analytical devices, among others, to submit their research. Submissions may include original research articles, review articles, and communications.

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.
