Interests: electrochemical biosensors; enzymatic biosensors; microfabrication processing, nano-metallic biosensor catalysts; single use; disposable biosensors
Advancements in biosensor technology in recent years, combined with nano-catalysts, wireless communication, and micro-fabrication processing have led to new innovations in health care around the world. Interestingly, electrochemical based devices are one of the core technologies in biomedical sensors.
Responding to current needs and bringing awareness of this critical and timely endeavor, this Journal, Biosensors, plans to prepare a Special Issue on Electrochemical and Biomedical Sensors which is devoted to the recent advancement of these technologies and their associated elements, such as light weight power sources, wireless communication techniques and others. Electrochemical based biomedical sensors, including enzymatic and whole cell biosensors, will be covered in this Special Issue. Also articles relating to in vivo and in vitro biomedical sensors produced by micro-fabrication processes and other means will be solicited for this issue. A further topic to be included and assessed is micro-catalysts and micro-structures which can enhance the sensor performance. Finally, detections of new and important biomarkers in non-invasive physiological medium, such as breath, saliva and urine are of particular interest.
We look forward to receiving your valuable contributions.

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. Papers will be published continuously (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 refereed through a 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 quarterly 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 300 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
