Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Lateral flow assays (LFAs) have garnered significant attention since the SARS-Cov-2 pandemic. Once antigenic lateral flow assays were developed, they quickly replaced RT-qPCR testing centres as the most popular method of COVID-19 diagnostics. This can be attributed to their true point-of-care nature since they meet all of the World Health Organization’s ASSURED criteria. However, there are still challenges with LFA development, and exciting technological advances to improve their diagnostic performance and make them quantitative are being widely investigated. This Special Issue focuses on all recent advances in lateral flow assays developed for biosensing applications, including the development of lateral flows for new biomarkers and technological and material advances that improve lateral flow assay performance.

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.
