Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Optical bioimaging and biosensing (e.g., fluorescence, chemiluminescence, bioluminescence, photoacoustic imaging and surface-enhanced Raman scattering imaging) has demonstrated many merits including non-ionizing radiation, high spatiotemporal resolution, good sensitivity, scalability in imaging resolution, field and depth, versatility in functionality and available imaging agents. The rapid evolution of optical instruments and technologies in microcopy, tomography, and endoscopy offer great promise for the real-time monitoring of physiological and pathological processes in molecular, cellular and animal levels, sensitively detecting biomarkers and disease microenvironment features, clearly pinpointing lesion margins, and even yielding faster responses of pharmacokinetics pharmacodynamics, and therapeutic efficacy. While a great number of optical imaging agents based on small molecules, polymers, hybrids, and nanoparticles have been customized for different application scenarios, these agents are integrated with other imaging modalities such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound imaging (US), single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), and positron emission tomography (PET) to offer more abundant information to boost the outcomes of bioimaging and biosensing.

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.
