Foodborne diseases related to food spoilage by emergent contaminants (chemical or biological agents) continue to be one of the biggest threats to global health and food safety. In recent years, electrochemical biosensors and bioassays have been intensively investigated, emerging as an excellent option for the rapid analysis of possible contaminations along several stages of the food chain. The fast and sensitive analysis allied to a portable, cost-effective, simple and user-friendly performance allows universal use, both on farms and in industrial environments. Therefore, the demand of electrochemical biosensing applications for the assessment of contaminants in fishery and agricultural commodities, processing food industries, water quality monitoring—namely, the rapid identification of foodborne pathogens and drugs of emerging concern—are extremely important in the development of sustainable and safe food chains with minimal food waste. So, this Special Issue " Role of electrochemical biosensors within sustainable food chains and food safety" focuses on the recent advances in the development of new platforms for on-site electrochemical biosensing transduction, within the integration of new bioreceptors, nanomaterials, signal amplification methods and innovative bioassay formats (e.g., DNA-based, LAMP, enzymatic, antibody-based).
We invite submissions of research that follow the purposed premises and present advances in meeting the demand for food sustainability, monitoring and safety.

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.
