Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The development of biosensors is of great importance, a fact which has been especially evident in recent years. As is well known, biosensors have interesting applications in molecular diagnostics, medical devices, food quality control, water purity control, environmental monitoring and more. One particular approach has utilized optofluidics, alongside the integration of optics and microfluidics, to provide new methods to detect biological phenomena.

This Special Issue of Biosensors aims to publish original high-quality research papers covering the most recent advances, as well as comprehensive reviews, in the field of optofluidic biosensors. Contributions may include experimental, theoretical, numerical, and computational research. This includes, but is not limited to, microfluidic environments interrogated by optics, manipulation of liquids for optical signal processing, integrated micro-optical systems, optofluidic–fiber systems, micro-optic/fluid interaction, optofluidic manipulation of biological specimen, optofluidic detection of biological systems, new optofluidic biosensor fabrication methods, or similar topics.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
