Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Growing demand for biological information in medical diagnostics, healthcare, agriculture, environmental monitoring, and many other application areas resulted in a tremendous interest in the field of biosensors. Optical biosensors, utilizing optical techniques, have become one of the most common types of biosensors due their high selectivity and specificity, compact design, immunity to electromagnetic interference, fast and real-time measurements, and remote sensing capabilities.
This Special Issue invites original contributions relating to optical biosensors, including, but not limited to, novel materials and principles in optical detection and transducing mechanisms, lab-on-a-chip optical platforms and solutions, micro- and nano-optical sensor arrays, methods of surface (bio)functionalization for optical sensing, applications of optical biosensors in medical diagnostics, pharmacology, health care, intracellular sensing, food analysis, agriculture, environmental monitoring, defense, and security.

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 1800 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.
