Special Issue "Surface Chemistry and Surface Design to Improve FET Biosensing"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2021.
Interests: thermodynamics and dynamics of biological identification systems; biochip; biosensor; biomolecule and stem cell separation and purification engineering; controlled release of biomedical materials, drugs and genes
Interests: biochips and biosensors; aptamers; field-effect transistors; biomarkers and biorecognition for disease diagnosis; antifouling for biosensors; surface modification and characterization; nanomaterials; semiconductors
Since their invention in the early years of this century, biosensors based on field-effect transistors have emerged as a superior tool to detect a variety of biomolecules and substances. During the last decade, enormous time and effort have been invested in FET biosensors to exploit them for determining numerous biomarkers (proteins, microRNAs, and so on) at ultra-low concentrations. They are therefore expected to play vital roles in the diagnosis of chronic diseases, as well as the development of precision medicine in the next decade.
This Special Issue welcomes high-quality publications including review, perspective, communication, and research articles related to recent advances in sensing technology by FETs, especially studies to improve FET-based biosensors for biomedical applications. The potential themes cover, but are not restricted to the following:
- Materials for FETs
- Nano-structured transducers
- Probe design and synthesis
- Transducer fabrication techniques
- Surface modification methods
- Antifouling functions
- Sensing biomarkers of pandemic
- Improving sensitivity and detection limit
- Applications in biologics manufacturing (biomanufacturing)Prof. Dr. Wen-Yih Chen

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.
