Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Nano–Bio devices offer fundamental knowledge, understanding, and current research progress on topics in materials chemistry, electrochemistry, nanoscience, nanotechnology, and nanobiotechnology, with applications in disease diagnosis, environmental field monitoring, food safety, and security. Over the years, there has been increasing need for the development of simple, cost-effective, portable, integrated biosensors that can be operated outside the laboratory by untrained personnel. However, to reach this goal, a reliable sensor technology based on printed electronics must be developed. Maximum conventional enzyme-based biosensors suffer from low signal amplification and complicated detection protocols. Signal amplification is an important tool for the accurate measurement of biomarkers in their very early stage. Furthermore, these fundamentally different technology platforms are currently used for the development of a point-of-care-test platform for early-stage disease detection in serum or blood (also non-invasive testing in saliva, sweat, or in urine) describing fundamental aspects, developments and their contribution to the area of biosensing, related to relevant aspects of the development of sensors. Accordingly, this Special Issue seeks to showcase research papers, communications, and review articles that focus on novel methodological developments in portable devices for simple and effective point-of-care testing for early-stage disease diagnosis before the extreme stage which can save the patient’s life.
We look forward to receiving your submissions!

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 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. Micromachines 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 2600 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.
