Current progress in nanoscience and nanotechnology has paved the way for the design of many new multi-functional materials for (bio-) sensing purposes. Modern biosensors, based on such micro- and nanoscale materials, offer new opportunities in analytical chemistry, healthcare, and many other fields. Indeed, the reduction in the size to nanoscale dimensions may result in cheaper, portable, and easier-to-use analytical tools, allowing for real-time analytical measurements, detection in microfluidic systems and in vivo monitoring applications. Of great interest, self-propelled micromotors represent a new paradigm in the field as novel nanoscale biosensors for the development of ‘on-the-move’ sensing schemes.
This Special Issue aims to highlight the most recent and promising technologies in micro and nanoscale biosensors—including self-propelled micromotors—their materials, fabrication and applications. Reviews and original research papers are all welcome.

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.
