This Special Issue of Biosensors will be devoted to micro and nano-bio-interfaces. Recent advances in micro and nanotechnologies have enabled the design and implementation of innovative bio-interfaces for a variety of biomedical applications, such as point-of-care diagnostics, high resolution disease diagnostics instruments, and automated biological laboratories and/or for life science research purposes. Among these technologies, Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) offers several advantages over other competing technologies for high throughput integrated biosensors (e.g., Ion Torrent CMOS Chip) and wireless implanted bio-sensors. Furthermore, nanomaterials (e.g., nanowires, carbon nanotubes nanoparticles) have greatly attracted the attentions for drug delivery as well as disease detections (e.g. epilepsy and cancer) and biosensors. This Special Issue takes a close look at “Micro- and Nano-Bio-Interfaces” as a multidisciplinary approach toward the development of novel tools for a veriety of life since applications. Therefore, the scope of this Special Issue ranges from the design and implementation of ‘micro- and nano- bio-interfaces’ devices to ‘micro- and nano- bio-interface’ applications in biomedical research, disease diagnostics, and subsequent clinical purposes.

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 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 1000 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.
