Electrochemical platforms are emerging as powerful tools for various applications in the fields of food, drug, and health. These platforms rely on the principles of electrochemistry to detect and quantify target analytes in complex matrices such as food, drugs, and biological fluids. They offer several advantages, such as high sensitivity, selectivity, and a rapid response time. In the food industry, electrochemical platforms can be used for detecting contaminants, such as pesticides, heavy metals, and foodborne pathogens, ensuring the safety and quality of food products. In the food industry, electrochemical platforms can be used for detecting contaminants, such as pesticides, heavy metals, and foodborne pathogens, ensuring the safety and quality of food products. In the pharmaceutical industry, electrochemical platforms can be used for drug discovery, drug delivery, and monitoring drug efficacy. In the healthcare industry, electrochemical platforms can be used for disease diagnosis, monitoring biomarkers, and personalized medicine. Electrochemical platforms based on organic–inorganic hetero-nano-interfaces represent a promising avenue in the development of highly sensitive and selective biosensors. These platforms combine the advantages of organic and inorganic components, resulting in improved electrical conductivity, biocompatibility, and selectivity. Additionally, the use of organic materials in these interfaces allows for the design of functional groups that can selectively bind to target molecules, further increasing the selectivity of the sensor.
We invite contributions to our upcoming Special Issue about electrochemical biosensing platforms for food, drug, and health safety. We welcome submissions from a diverse range of fields pertaining to this topic, with particular interest in studies concerning the design, development, and application of organic–inorganic hetero-nano-interfaces in portable and miniaturized devices for the rapid detection of contaminants and pathogens.

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 2700 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.
