Single-cell analysis is an important technology in the field of cell biology and biomedicine. It highly promotes the understanding of cellular heterogeneity, cell–cell interactions and intracellular changes at the nano/micro scale. In the last several decades, a variety of biosensing technologies have been developed to profile biochemical/biophysical information at the single-cell level such as high-resolution fluorescence imaging, single-cell sequencing, flow cytometry, scanning electrochemical microscopy and microfluidic systems, etc. These technologies for single-cell analysis have been widely utilized in disease diagnosis, bioengineering, drug screen and biological therapy. Nevertheless, several challenges remain, especially as regards developing high-throughput, low-cytotoxicity, high-time-resolution and high-spatial-resolution biosensing technologies for single-cell analysis. In addition, with the rapid expansion of data and information acquired in single-cell detection, introducing the latest achievements from information science such as machine learning, computer vision and cloud computing for processing of the single cell data has received increasing attentions, as these techniques can significantly increase the efficiency of data analysis and enable the extraction of crucial features.
This Special Issue focus on the cutting-edge biosensing technologies for single-cell analysis. We welcome original works, perspectives, and reviews including, but not limited to, the development and applications of sensing technologies, data-processing methods, microfluidic devices and instruments for single-cell analysis.

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.
