There is an unmet need to explore the fundamentals and develop ultra-sensitive, easy-to-use, and rapid diagnostic devices in multiple disciplines, such as clinical medicine, food safety, and immunoassays. Detection of biomarkers is a standard method for disease diagnosis and can be employed for successful detection of various diseases. Discovery of new biomarkers, advancement of surface chemistry and its control and various detection techniques has enabled the development of ultra-sensitive devices capable of detecting multiple targets at once. Furthermore, owing to extremely unique properties, such as superior conductivity and extremely large specific surface area, materials like graphene and carbon nanotubes (CNT) have shown potential applicability in the field of biosensing.This Special Issue invites contributions in the field of biosensors using innovative development techniques, especially focusing on graphitic carbon. Examples of application area include, but not limited to, cancer makers detection, general health monitoring, clinical analysis and diagnosis of disease, industrial monitoring and processing, and environmental pollution monitoring.

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.
