Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biosensing platforms that draw inspiration from the molecular identification function of living organisms have witnessed significant advances in sensing capability. Recent innovative developments in diagnostic devices have allowed for enhanced analytical performance, miniaturized sensors, multiplex analysis, and readout signal enhancement. Of particular interest are biosensors based on two-dimensional (2D) materials, which are characterized by their thin-layered structure and unique properties, making them highly useful in biosensing applications. Since the isolation of graphene in 2004, there has been an exponentially growing number of reports exploring the use of 2D materials in biosensing and other emerging healthcare applications.

For this Special Issue, we welcome the submission of original research papers and review articles that harness the inherent properties of 2D materials for biosensing applications. This Special Issue aims to explore the challenges and opportunities of the use of 2D materials in biosensing platforms. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following aspects:

  1. The design, fabrication, and characterization of 2D materials for biosensing;
  2. Applications of 2D-material-based biosensors in areas such as point-of-care diagnostics, disease monitoring, and drug delivery.

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.
