Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Advancements in micro and nanotechnology have enabled novel, sensitive, portable, wearable, and low-cost biosensors, which find broad uses in a variety of fields, including personalized medicine, point of care diagnostics, drug discovery, public health, and environmental health monitoring.

We are pleased to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue on “Micro/Nano Biosensors—Fundamentals, Fabrication, and Application”. This Special Issue focuses on reporting innovations on a variety of topics in micro/nano biosensors, from fundamental principles and advanced micro/nanomanufacturing techniques to novel materials and metamaterials, platform integration, and biological and medical applications. Topics of interest include novel development in microfluidic/nanofluidic sensors, flexible/wearable electronic sensors, as well as biosensors that use electrochemical, optical, acoustic, magnetic, and other principles. The scope of the journal is wide on biosensing, including but not limited to the following areas:

• Micro/nano biosensing;
• Microfluidics and nanofluidic biosensors;
• Micro and nanofabrication;
• Lab-on-a-chip sensors;
• Electrochemical sensing;
• Optofluidic sensing;
• Physiological signal detection;
• Detection of viruses and bacteria;
• Flexible and wearable electronic biosensors;
• Novel materials, e.g., 2D, metamaterials, and liquid metals, for biosensing;
• Field effect transistors (FET) for biosensing.

Both original research and topical reviews on recent developments in the field will be considered for publication.

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 2000 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.

The detection of water contamination with Legionella pneumophila is of critical importance to manufacturers of water processing equipment and public health entities dealing with water networks and distribution systems. Detection methods based on polymerase chain reaction or biosensor technologies require preconcentration steps to achieve attractive sensitivity levels. Preconcentration must also be included in protocols of automated collection of water samples by systems designed for quasi-continuous monitoring of remotely located water reservoirs for the presence of L. pneumophila. We designed and characterized a water sampling module for filtration and backwashing intended for analysis of low-to-medium contaminated water, typically with L. pneumophila bacteria not exceeding 50 colony-forming units per milliliter. The concentration factors of 10× and 21× were achieved with 0.22 and 0.45 µm filters, respectively, for samples of bacteria prepared in clean saline solutions. However, a 5× concentration factor was achieved with 0.45 µm filters for a heavily contaminated or turbid water typical of some industrial water samples. Full article
