Toxin, a critical hazard factor in environment and food, seriously threatens human health. Effective monitoring techniques are urgently demanded to supervise toxin and protect human health. Advanced biosensors have been considered efficient tools for toxin analysis in recent years, which allow sensitive and specific determination of trace analysts on-site. This Special Issue mainly focuses on the development of biosensors for ultrasensitive and portable detection of toxin. In this regard, this Special Issue aims to gather high-quality original works for the design, fabrication, and application of biosensors with new principles, strategies, and technologies. Biosensors based on various recognition elements (antibodies, aptamers, molecularly imprinted polymers, etc.) and sensing modes (colorimetric, fluorescent, electrochemical, chemiluminescent, surface-enhanced Raman scattering, etc.) are satisfying the growing demand for methods and have been established as powerful analytical devices enabling rapid, reliable, portable, and sensitive analytical measurements. Reviews reflecting current hotspots, challenges, and perspectives of biosensors for toxin analysis are particularly welcome.

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.
