Since the advent of the biosensor for glucose monitoring around the mid-1980s, there has been a phenomenal growth in the field of biosensors and rapid diagnostics development with emerging applications in a wide range of disciplines, including food safety and quality for the prevention of foodborne illness. This is as a result of the increasing demand to develop rapid sensing for risk management and also to comply with increasing legislations for safety and quality standards. With the emerging field of nanotechnology, new nanomaterial and micro/nano transducer devices have been introduced to the biosensor arena and applied to develop advanced and highly sensitive sensor devices.
This Special Issue in “Biosensors Applications in Food Safety” will include the latest developments and advances in biosensors developed for food safety, comprising new sensor fabrication technologies, the emerging synthetic receptors and nanomaterials used for their construction. Emphasis will be placed on applications for pathogenic microorganisms and their toxins, plants toxins, pesticides residues and other environmental pollutants, food additives, and allergens. These are some of the examples of what this Special Issue will cover.

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 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 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). 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.
