Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Immunoassays are widely applied for the detection of diseases, bacteria, viruses, drugs, allergens, toxins in food, and other biomolecules. In the last several years, the clinical demand for rapid immunodiagnostics has been demonstrated in immediate proximity to minimizing the spread of infection at an early stage. In that respect, point-of-care (POC) diagnostics have been proven to be substantial portable analytical tools, especially lateral flow, vertical flow, wearable, and optical immunoassay platforms. However, the demand for highly sensitive, and accurate point-of-care platforms in clinical and low-resource settings is ever increasing. Therefore, this Special Issue, "Advances in Immunoassay Biosensing Platform for Point-of-Care Diagnostics", focuses on the recent advances in immunoassay platforms for the detection of antigens, antibodies, proteins, small molecules, DNA, and RNA with the integration of advanced or innovative detection technologies, sample processing, and labeling molecules to apply in point-of-care diagnostics. We invite submissions of research that help to advance immunoassay biosensing platforms for point-of-care diagnostics and its application for rapid diagnosis in low-resource settings.

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.
