Biosensor technology, based on specific antigen–antibody interactions, and in which the transducer detects, either directly or indirectly, immunochemical reactions are called Immunosensors. Recently, integration of new materials into biosensors, such as magnetic particles, has offered the possibility to obtain fast and automated screening methods, with increased sensitivity. More importantly, the advantages of using magnetic particles in magnetic separation of bacteria, virus, and dangerous toxins coupled with different detection techniques (electrochemical and optical methods) have contributed significantly not only clinical analysis, (the traditional field of application of immunoanalysis), but also environmental analyses, quality control in pharmaceutical and food industries, biosecurity and prevention of bioterrorism to avoid harmful contaminations for human and the environment.Prof. Dr. Laura Micheli
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.
