During the last two decades, optical biosensors, in particular label-free optical biosensors, have become one of the most attractive biosensing techniques thanks to a number of unique characteristics such as the use of light and the excellent bioanalytical performance. Their applications in different domains gain momentum and cover various disciplines such as food safety, environmental monitoring, health care, and biosecurity.
The goal of this Special Issue “Biosensors for Food Safety and Quality Inspection” is to bring together novel biosensing technologies and optical detection approaches for monitoring food safety and quality. Moreover, we encourage researchers to demonstrate new applications of optical biosensors in the food supply chain, from production, to cultivation, to consumption. A wide range of possible analytes that are present in food enable the development of various types of optical biosensors based on waveguides, fibers, photonic crystals, nanoparticles, and free-form optics, combined with chemical surface functionalization techniques and/or biological recognition elements. Furthermore, portable lab-on-a-chip devices working with optical detection principles make possible fast, economic inspection of food quality at different points of the food supply chain.
We kindly invite you to share your work, expertise, insights, and latest results with the biosensor-research community in the form of research articles and reviews for this Special Issue.

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.
