Point-of-care testing (POCT) devices are an emerging alternative for the detection and diagnosis of disease. This technology can provide in vitro diagnostics and immediately actionable healthcare information at accident sites, in doctors’ offices, and in ambulances. POCT may also allow patients to self-test and self-manage care at their homes. Effective and rapid point-of-care (POC) diagnostics could revolutionize public healthcare both in developed and developing countries.
Biosensing for point-of-care diagnostics is a research field that has seen growing interest since the first device for detecting glucose was developed. Biosensors and point-of-care devices are poised to change the delivery of healthcare. Biosensor technology can be used in cheap, disposable point-of-care devices or via implantable devices to provide continuous monitoring. This Special Issue aims to gather articles and reviews detailing advances in biosensing systems for diagnostics in several areas, such as health, food, the environment, etc.
Topics of interest include:
- In vitro detection systems;
- Biosensing technologies for point-of-care devices;
- Detection systems for point-of-care testing;
- Biosensing technologies for continuous monitoring;
- Label-free and labeled technologies for point-of-care devices.

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.
