Special Issue "Aptasensor for Biomarker Detection: From Design to Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 March 2024 | Viewed by 2854
The determination of specific biomarker proteins in complex biological fluids is essential for the diagnosis of certain diseases. Variations in the concentration of biomarkers are correlated with the infected diseases. Quantitative detection of biomarker proteins from the samples is crucial and challenging. It is common practice to use antibodies as bioreceptors for the quantification of proteins. Aptamers exhibit high affinity, and specificity and are sensitive to several biomarker proteins, which allow for the exploration of the probing of new biomarker proteins. The development of aptamer-based (aptasensor), simple, sensitive, and rapid diagnostic methods for the identification of new biomarkers would be of significant interest to researchers. Thus, this Special Issue ‘Aptasensor for Biomarker Detection: From Design to Applications’ would be an appropriate platform for you to share your recent research findings on aptasensors for biomarker diagnosis. Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts on the discovery of biomarkers through aprasensors and sensor design for the field of applications. Manuscripts with simple, low-cost mass production, high-throughput screening, and point-of-care testing of aptasensor design will be highly appreciated.

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.
