Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Miniaturization of analytical instruments such as electrophoresis, UV-VIS spectroscopy, and mass spectrometry is driven by a need to reduce cost by consumption of low volumes of expensive fluids and reagents, achieve multiplexing, and increase throughput by automation. A recent research trend is fabricating small and smaller electronic, mechanical, and optical devices to provide a faster, real-time response and more selective and sensitive detection. Among the many developed techniques, microfluidics has been a choice of technique to fabricate devices due to the advantages of controllability, reproducibility, stability with small volumes, and reaction for testing. Microfluidics-based analytical sensors have been widely used in various applications such as point-of-care diagnostics, environmental monitoring, pathogen detection in food, healthcare monitoring, water quality, drug testing, and various chemical and biological domains.

For this Special Issue, we invite original research articles, communications, and review papers focusing on cutting-edge research and innovation in fabricating microfluidics-based analytical devices, including biosensors, paper-based analytical devices, electrochemical sensors, and optical sensors for the point-of-care diagnosis, environmental monitoring, detection of diseases such as COVID-19, detection of emerging contaminants and much more. This Special Issue will focus on applications including, but not limited to, food safety, water quality, forensic, plant-based pathogens, environmental monitoring, healthcare, and drug development.

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.
