Label-free optical biosensors are a powerful tool for detecting and quantifying specific biomolecular compounds, without additional labeling or altering target biomolecules. Its distinctive advantages in terms of simplicity and rapidity of the measurement procedure have promoted its vast applications, covering biology, health care, pharmacy, food safety, agriculture and environmental monitoring. In the recent decades, there has been a large effort aiming at the development of reliable label-free optical biosensors with good performances (e.g. high precision, good stability, cost-effectiveness, high sensitivity and specificity), and great progress has been made in this research field to fulfill the growing demand on label-free optical biosensors.
This Special Issue aims to highlight the emerging applications of label-free optical biosensors, covering biological, clinical, environmental, agricultural, industrial and other related applications. All submissions with the topics related to recent and crucial insights into improvements of label-free optical biosensors, including but not limited to sensing theory, sensing materials, optical sensing system, optical signal processing and their applications, are encouraged and welcomed.

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.
