Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biosensors play pivotal roles in health management, biosafety monitoring and diagnosis of various diseases. Technologies developed for biosensing encompass multidisciplinary research areas, from physics, chemistry and engineering, to medical sciences. Various smart nanomaterial-based probes and machine-learning- (ML) and AI-driven data techniques are utilized in biosensing, alongside advanced device development, including lab-on-a-chip (LOCs) and/or organ-on-a-chip (OOCs), to achieve highly sensitive and selective detection and tracking of biomarkers and biological changes in humans, animals and the environment. This Special Issue, entitled “Biosensing, Biosafety and Diagnosis”, will feature the latest discoveries and innovative approaches that have emerged in the field of biosensing research for health/biosafety monitoring and diagnostics, which will lead to better practice to promote human and animal wellness. The topics covered in this Special Issue will be as follows:

  1. Smart nanomaterial-based sensors for disease-related biomarkers;
  2. Point of care diagnostics;
  3. ML/AI-driven spectroscopic and image processing for diagnostic biosensing;
  4. LOCs and/or OOCs sensors for biological characterization;
  5. Nanosensors for drug delivery and treatment evaluation.

Guest Editor

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.
