Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The continuous development of society in science, technology and industry has allowed the longevity of the human population to increase. However, health problems and associated diseases represent a significant challenge in contemporary society increasingly concerned about health, meaning that interest in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases has grown rapidly.

Since clinical analyses in a clinical chemistry laboratory are costly and time-consuming processes today, one of the main challenges in medical diagnostics is the development of methods to perform these rapid analyses in situ.

In recent years, electrochemical sensors have become of increasing interest as engineered biomedical tools for the laboratory as well as point-of-care (POC) diagnostics of reliable molecules in personal health care due to their high sensitivity and selectivity, portable field-based size, rapid response time, low-cost and the possibility of being highly flexible, non-invasive, implantable/wearable, biocompatible, lightweight and easy to fabricate.

One of the main goals when developing these types of platforms is their ability to function while being directly connected to a system, either externally, on human skin, or internally, on soft tissue, to ensure the accurate and reliable in situ measurement of parameters, physiological (pH, temperature, heart rate, neural signals, blood pressure) or biomarker content in real-time.

The aim of this Special Issue on Chemosensors is to focus on the most recent approaches to performing innovative and enhanced electrochemical sensing in medical diagnosis.

Both review articles and research papers on these highlighted topics are welcome.

This topic fits within the scope of Chemosensors because it provides an advanced forum for the science and technology of electrochemical sensors and related analytical methods and systems in medical diagnosis.

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. Chemosensors 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.
