Over the past years, the numbers of publications related to the detection of food, environmental and drug allergens and allergies in humans and pets have increased rapidly, which implies that analytical tools are playing an important role in this area of knowledge.
With the rapid development of molecular diagnostics, biosensing techniques integrated with new materials and devices have shown great potential for in vitro allergy testing. Biosensing systems and biosensors are analytical devices that use a biological recognition element (e.g., enzyme, antibody, nucleic acids, and aptamer) for the specific detection of target analytes in biological samples and a system to transduce the biorecognition into a measurable signal.
The Special Issue on Biosensing systems for allergen and allergy testing of Biosensors, an Open Access journal from MDPI, will provide insights into novel analytical approaches on relevant principles, materials, and methods to solve shortcomings of current technologies, to bring and stimulate new ideas to one of the most exciting and clinically beneficial areas of research. In short, this Special Issue will provide a platform and opportunity to promote cooperation, information, dissemination and exchange between researchers and industry based on novel biosensing technologies for allergen and allergy testing.

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.
