The technological advances resulting from the multitude of genome projects have propelled the scientific community into a new era of post-genomic science. This is especially true regarding array-based technology platforms for research. Microarrays, whether printed on a glass slide or incorporated in to a microfluidic or nanotechnology platform, still offer several distinct advantages over competing conventional analytical technologies. Also, microarrays are no longer limited to just nucleic acid-based detection. Protein microarrays, hybrid nucleic acid-protein microarrays, antibody microarray and chemical compound microarrays have all now been produced on varied substrates for monitoring both biological and chemical processes. Along with the expansion of types of arrays there has been a large growth in the methods and instruments used for detection.
This special issue will cover all topics relevant to the science, technology and applications of array-based detection sensors. Areas of interest include, but not limited to,
• Array-based detection platforms at the micro and nanoscale
• Label free and label-based sensors
• Electrical and chemical sensors
• Automation of detection and data analysis
• Development of multiple target analyte sensors, as well as array-based applications for both qualitative and quantitative microarray detection
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.
