Interests: nano-enabled biosensing, nanoparticles; nanowires, elecrochemical sensing approaches; infectious diseases; global health; food/water safety; biodefense; product integrity
This Special Issue will cover biosensing technologies based on nanoparticles of all forms, for a variety of detection and diagnostic applications: infectious and chronic diseases, biomarker monitoring and discovery, pathogen contamination in food and the environment, drug compliance monitoring, plant and animal disease monitoring, epidemiological assessment, product integrity and authentication, bio-energy quality monitoring, and many other applications. Biological receptors may include antibodies, DNA probes, aptamers, enzymes, molecularly imprinted polymers, glycoproteins, and many other forms of target recognition. Detection modalities may include optical, electrical, electrochemical, acoustic waves, magnetic, and other forms and combinations of signal generation. Microfluidics, lab-on-chip, and integrated platforms are most welcome.

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. 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). 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.
