Special Issue "Polymer-Dot-Based Biosensors for Biomedical Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2024 | Viewed by 2206
Nano-fluorescence technology is playing an increasingly important role in modern biomedical research and shows great potential for applications in the detection, diagnosis and treatment of health and major diseases. Among them, semiconducting polymer nanoparticles, also known as polymer dots (Pdots) are a new type of organic optical nanomaterials that has been subject to in-depth research by researchers at home and abroad in recent years. Compared with traditional luminescent materials, polymer nanoparticles are particularly suitable for their outstanding characteristics, including extraordinary fluorescence brightness, fast emission rate, excellent photostability, and nonblinking and nontoxic features. Pdots have demonstrated utility in a wide range of applications such as fluorescence imaging and biosensing, such as cellular labeling, in vivo imaging, single-particle tracking, biosensing, and drug delivery. Pdot technology is expected to have a broad and lasting impact on biomedical imaging, diagnosis and therapy.

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.
