Nano- and microtechnology-based biosensors are state-of-the-art emerging technologies and promising alternatives to conventional methods. Micro- and nanostructured sophisticated systems exhibit great advantages in terms of their cost-effectiveness, the simple and rapid analysis they facilitate, the ease of their fabrication, their portability, increased detectability, high sensitivity, specificity, precision and robustness, as well as their increased capability for multiplexing. Along with their rapid development and structural flexibility, micro- and nanomaterials are ideal miniaturized sensing platforms for use in the construction of novel biosensors. Micro- and nanomaterials have been incorporated into applications concerning biosensors for signal enhancement, as their use avoids enzymatic reactions or multiple enhancement steps. Signal enhancement is mainly attributed to their high surface-to-volume ratio and their excellent properties. Moreover, these materials provide excellent solid support for the ease of surface modification and (bio)molecular immobilization for the analysis of various targets and numerous interdisciplinary applications.

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.
