Special Issue "Electrochemical Biosensors for Medical Diagnosis and Health Monitoring"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 December 2023 | Viewed by 835
According to the biosensor market, the area of biosensing is projected to grow USD 3.2 billion by 2026, where the electrochemical technology segment will hold the highest share during the forecast period. Using electrochemical biosensors is considered one of the most important methods in medical diagnosis and healthcare monitoring, due to their potential scope of miniaturization and integration with other analytical devices. The area promises to form modern sensing technologies due to their high sensitivities and long-range detection with high specificities in the range from 10-18 to 10-3 units. This help in early-stage disease or condition detection or monitoring of biomarker present in trace quantities. Another important aspect of electrochemical biosensors is their capability of detection in a variety of invasive samples (blood, serum, CSF) and noninvasive samples (sweat, tear, urine, saliva). The miniaturization capability allows the availability of electrochemical biosensors in home diagnostic applications and wearable device fabrications. These applications offer intermittent and/or continuous monitoring of analytes for better health management either remotely or onsite. Other challenges in the area include physical effect (temperature) and chemical effects (pH, biofouling) that may affect the selectivity, stability and shelf life, and reproducibility of an electrochemical sensing platform.

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.
