Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanomaterials have unique size-dependent physical or chemical properties. At the nanoscale, their optical, magnetic, electrical, thermal and biological properties can be adjusted by changing their size, shape, chemical composition, surface functional groups, etc. In particular, nanomaterials can provide significant space to modify different molecules on their surface due to their much higher specific surface area than macroscopic materials. This makes them useful in applications such as bioanalysis and biosensors. Nanoprobes modified with different molecules on these surfaces can selectively detect small molecules, nucleic acids, proteins and microorganisms. After the fusion of nanoprobe and biosensor technology, nanomaterials are expected to have the characteristics of a lower detection limit, higher sensitivity and stronger selectivity, and their combination with clinical diagnostic analysis technology will also push clinical in vitro diagnosis towards new growth. Therefore, this Special Issue, "Functional Nanoprobe-Based Biosensing Platform: "From Design to Application", will focus on the latest progress in the production of functionalized nanobiosensors, their functional design, and applications in the field of biosensing. We invite research submissions that can help advance the field of functionalized nanobiosensors and their applications in bioanalysis.

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.
