Over the past decades, the enormous growth in the diversity of artificially synthesized ﬂuorescent probes has greatly promoted the development of cell biology. For imaging different cellular structures, a series of molecular probes have been designed to target cytoskeletal proteins, mitochondria, lysosomes, peroxisomes, the ER, Golgi apparatuses, cell nuclei, lipid droplets, and plasma membranes. Typically, ﬂuorescent probes can serve as highly sensitive indicators to detect the intrinsically non-ﬂuorescent species and parameters of cells, such as metal ions, glutathione, reactive oxygen species (ROS), adenosine triphosphate (ATP), pH values, membrane potentials, and so on. Nonetheless, the demand for high-quality ﬂuorescent probes that are of a high quantum yield, highly selective and sensitive, biocompatible, near-infrared emission, easy to use, and, in particular, can be used for super-resolution imaging is ever increasing. Therefore, this Special Issue, “Fluorescent Probe for Biosensing and Cell Imaging”, focuses on the recent advances in the production of novel cell probes, including small-molecule dyes, ﬂuorescent antibodies, and ﬂuorescent nanomaterials (inorganic QDs, carbon dots, ﬂuorescent metal nanoclusters, and ﬂuorescent dye-loaded NPs). We invite submissions of research that help to advance the field of ﬂuorescent probe technology and its applications for microscopic image analyses of biomarkers.

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.
