Novel infectious pathogens such as SARS-CoV2 present a tremendous threat to human society. Traditional detection methods based on sophisticated instrumentation in central labs are time-consuming and require trained personnel. There is an urgent need for biosensors that can rapidly and accurately detect pathogens at the point-of-care (PoC) to improve responsiveness to outbreaks. PoC diagnostic devices could also be used in human healthcare testing and food/environmental monitoring in low-resource settings. There has been remarkable progress in PoC biosensors in recent years in terms of miniaturization, multiplex analysis, and readout signal enhancement, thus improving analytical performance. The advancing field of diagnostic devices integrating microfluidics, nanomaterials, optics, and electronics offers new possibilities for the rapid, low-cost detection of various pathogens and biomarkers. This Special Issue will present the latest developments in PoC biosensors for applications. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- Low-cost portable devices for in situ measurement;
- “Lab-on-a-chip” sensors;
- Nanomaterials-based biosensors;
- Paper-based biosensors;
- Wearable biosensors.

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.
