Special Issue in Biosensors: Molecularly Imprinted Polymers (MIPs) Biosensors
Low-cost chemical and biochemical sensors/nanosensors for point-of-care or in-field diagnostics in the medical, environmental, and security areas are extremely important for the health and wellbeing of our society. Therefore, this Special Issue aims at presenting, discussing, and reviewing the latest materials and technologies developed to obtain sensitive, specific, and user-friendly devices that can be used outside the laboratory. This will include the latest developments on the design of robust novel sensing elements such as aptamers and molecularly imprinted polymers and any other stable bioengineered receptors and their use in chemical sensors. In addition, novel materials/nanomaterials to obtain sensitive transducers such as optical, electrochemical, and micro-mechanical will also be covered by the 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 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.
