Special Issue Information
Biosensors are a type of analytical device that are applied to detect chemical and biological substances by converting their concentration into electrical signals for output. Biosensors consist of biological recognition components including DNA, RNA, antibodies, enzymes, cells, aptamers, and physicochemical transducers such as electrical, optical, chemical, physical detectors. Due to their high sensitivity, good selectivity, and fast analysis speed, biosensors have been widely applied in various sectors of the national economy such as food quality, pharmaceutical, chemical, clinical laboratory, biomedicine, environmental monitoring, and so on. In recent years, the rapid development of nanotechnology has provided a rare opportunity for the fabrication of new biosensors. Nano-biosensors are the fusion of nanotechnology and biosensors, which have become a significant research hotspot. However, the new nano-biosensors also face many challenges, such as sensitivity, specificity, biocompatibility, integration of multiple technologies, simplified detection methods, preparation processes, cost-effectiveness, etc.
This Special Issue of Biosensors aims to supply a platform for publishing original high-quality research papers and comprehensive reviews related to the design and synthesis of any nanomaterials and their application in biosensors. Any type of experimental and theoretical research about biosensors in nanotechnology is welome.

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 2200 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.
