This Special Issue focuses on recent developments in the field of “Raman and Infrared Spectroscopic Sensing”. Both techniques provide intrinsic molecular selectivity and can thus be exploited for label free sensing of biomolecules in complex samples. The development of very robust, miniaturized, and highly sensitive sensors opens up new opportunities for in-line analysis, point-of-care application, and continuous field studies. Exciting application-fields for these sensing techniques are biomedical diagnostic, materials development, process analysis, investigation of pharmaceuticals, food analysis, environmental monitoring, and many others.
You are kindly invited to submit your original articles or reviews.

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 papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the collection 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 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 350 CHF (Swiss Francs).

Title: Ramanomics: Molecular Profiling of Cellular Organelles
Authors: A.N. Kuzmin, A. Pliss and P.N. Prasad
Abstract: Inherent non-invasive properties, independence from labels, and high 3D resolution provided by Raman spectrometry open new dimensions in studies of interactions and dynamics at subcellular levels in biological systems. Implementation of BCA (biomolecular component analysis) to microRaman spectrometry provides basis for the emergence of Ramanomics, a new direction in the family of “omics” technologies with unprecedented capabilities to measure concentrations of distinct molecular groups in live cells and organelles. Here we review the combined microRaman-BCA technique for probing absolute concentrations of proteins, DNA, RNA and lipids in the single organelles of live cells. Concentration molecular profiles of organelles as a single cell assay provides a physiologically relevant set of markers of cellular heterogeneity. In addition, changes in their concentration profile during a cellular transformation, whether natural, drug induced or disease manifested, provides a molecular insight into the nature of the cellular process.
