Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The recent pandemic has exposed the challenges due to non-availability of diagnostic technologies that are accurate yet low cost, accessible, user-friendly and amenable to massive manufacturing scale-up and parallelization. The availability of such easy-to-use and reasonably sensitive detection method for community level testing holds the potential of capturing the commonly missed cases of early infection and asymptomatic disease presentation and reduce the opportunity for community-level transmission. Such compelling needs, along with other prevailing public health challenges, have triggered very active research towards developing novel molecular diagnostic technologies with particular focus on innovative biosensing platforms for molecular analysis. The special issue aims to showcase some of the related recent original innovations, along with example cases of technology translation and adaptation in under-resourced settings, having interdisciplinary perspectives combining microfluidics, materials science and technology, electronics, smartphone integration among some of the key pillars of digital and data sciences. The Special issue also welcomes Perspective and Review articles that would guide the readers with a futuristic vision on the advancements of biomolecular diagnostics, targeting specific public health measures towards catering the underserved, with no distinction between consumers having expected variabilities in economic barrier, and in the process 'democratize' disease diagnostics with no differential treatment of the rich and the poor.

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.
