Special Issue "Analytical and Nanoanalytical Methods for Biomedical and Environmental Sciences 2016"
A special issue of Biosensors (ISSN 2079-6374).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2017)
Analytical and nanoanalytical methods, which are generally used for (bio)medical and environmental science applications, comprise both labeled (fluorescence, nuclear, etc.) and label-free detection techniques, such as electrical, electrochemical, optical, piezoelectric or thermal detection. Biosensors, based on both labeled and label-free detection methods, have earned considerable interests in the recent years and they exhibit great promises for a wide range of applications in biological research, medical diagnostics, environmental analysis or even food monitoring.
For this Special Issue, “Analytical and Nanoanalytical Methods for Biomedical and Environmental Sciences 2016” we invite manuscripts dealing with biosensing for aforementioned applications above, which will be presented in the frame of the International Conference IC-ANMBES 2016 in Brasov, Romania (http://sciforum.net/conference/icanmbes), without any limitation to this. Both original research and review articles will be welcome. Original research papers should describe the development, characterization/evaluation, simulations and/or utilization of different platforms for the detection of biological active species in complex samples, with promising applications in medical diagnostics, environmental or food monitoring. Review articles should provide an up-to-date and critical state-of-the-art overview on specific biosensing techniques and/or platforms/detection mechanisms for targeted application fields. These articles can deal with microfluidics and point-of-care microdevices, optical fibers, novel material electrodes and surface functionalization strategies for the detection of specific (bio)molecules in complex samples, or they can propose new concepts and fundamental studies with potential relevance to biosensing.
Please feel free to contact us and to send us suggestions that you would like to discuss beforehand. We look forward to your contribution, and welcome your participation in this Special Issue.

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 papers will be 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 quarterly 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 350 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.
