Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce this Special Issue titled “Novel Thin Film Technology for Biosensors and Other Biocompatible Devices”. Biosensors and biocompatible devices are cutting-edge technologies that play a crucial role in the field of biomedical engineering and healthcare. These devices have revolutionized medical diagnostics, health monitoring, drug delivery, and prosthetics.

Challenges remain in terms of optimizing the sensitivity, selectivity, and stability of biosensors, as well as improving the long-term performance and durability of biocompatible devices. Researchers are actively working on innovations and advancements in these fields, aiming to further revolutionize healthcare and improve patient outcomes.

The scope of this Special Issue includes, but is not limited to, biocompatible coatings and coating techniques for biomedical devices, thin films for flexible and wearable biosensors, biocompatible materials, and nanomaterials for biosensing technologies.

Dr. Mara Bruzzi
Guest Editor
