This issue is devoted to the field Microbial Biosensors ranging from detecting growth of microorganisms to the tracking of metabolic activity or drug resistance within microorganism based on nano/microtechnology. Contributions on the integration of the microbial biosensors in small form factor e.g. lab-on-chips are of high interest for this special issue. All types of applications using nano/microtechnology for on-line detection will be accepted.
