Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Plasmonic-based sensors have shown great potential in the development of point-of-care devices following extensive work over the past two decades, due to their high sensitivity, easy fabrication and the possibility of integration with other methods. These sensors operate by functionalizing a metallic surface with a specific receptor which, upon binding to the biomolecule (to be sensed), results in variations in the detectable parameter, such as the angle, wavelength or intensity, that represents changes in the resonance condition observed. Hence, choosing the appropriate materials, structures, reading methodology and functionality for plasmonic sensor fabrication is of great importance to developing biosensors that are highly specific for their application in real-life situations.

The present Special Issue, “Plasmonic Biosensors for Point-of-Care (POC) Diagnostics”, aims to assemble a diverse collection of works dealing with the development and integration of plasmonic transducers with advancements in modern technologies towards point-of-care testing devices.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Biosensors 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 2200 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.
