Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Sensors (analytical devices) that enable fast, specific, and sensitive detection of chemical and biological compounds continue to be developed with important applications in health, food, and environmental monitoring. Biosensors could facilitate the rapid diagnosis of diseases in their early stages, which is critical for effective disease management. In the area of food safety and quality, sensors could provide food-processing operators, consumers, and food safety authorities with the ability to rapidly detect potential contaminants. This Special Issue of Biosensors will highlight recent developments and contributions of nanomaterials for improving the performance of biosensors in detecting disease biomarkers or food contaminants. It will include studies on colloidal sensors or paper-based devices for the detection of proteins, nucleic acids, toxins, bacteria, cells, volatile organic compounds, drugs, etc. in biological or food samples. Both original contributions and reviews are welcome to provide an overview of the state of the art in nanoparticle-based sensors.

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.
