Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, we have witnessed the development of a number of biocatalytic biosensors as end-user and time-saving analytical devices for analyte detection in the fields of food, clinical and environmental sensing. Among all the transduction techniques under consideration, research into biocatalytic biosensors has mostly focused on amperometric devices.

Enzymes were historically the first molecular recognition elements included in biocatalytic biosensors, but it is now possible to rely on several biocatalysts (e.g., catalytic DNA strands, nanozymes, smart hydrogels etc.). Nowadays, billions of people are surrounded by biocatlaytic biosensors despite their relatively young age of only 60 years! In this period, many researchers, dealing mostly with the same target molecules as in early times, have developed novel strategies to tackle electron transfer issues and to realize stable, sensitive, and selective biosensors.

This Special Issue devoted to biocatalytic biosensors (e.g., amperometric, potentiometric etc.) aims to focus on the most recent advances in the development of highly sensitive, selective and stable biosensors for food-related, biomedical and environmental applications.

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.
