Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A biosensor is an analytical device which combines a biological component with a physiochemical detection system to detect, transmit and record the desired information. A live cell-based sensor, as one of the important biosensor members, is well accepted and used for investigating various signaling cascades caused by cytotoxic effects of reagents. A basic assembly of a live cell-based sensor consists of a receptor and a transducer. When the stimuli get in touch with the cell, they pass through the cell plasma membrane with the help of receptors. The receptors are a very important part of live cell-based sensors. The Special Issue of the journal Sensors will cover these different types of live cell-based sensors with receptors, and consider applications for these different fields.

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. Sensors 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 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs).
