Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
This Special Issue will be dedicated to the rapid detection of bacteria and pathogens. The detection can take place for human or animal bodily fluids, e.g., milk, blood, urine, cerebrospinal fluid, etc., or for foodborne pathogens. An emphasis will be set to original techniques that can lead to portable devices that are able to selectively detect harmful bacteria in synthetic or complex media and with the fastest detection rate.
