Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent decades, much attention has been paid to the development of electrochemical sensors and biosensors, providing remarkable features such as fast response, handling ease, robust, cost-effectivity sensitivity, portability, simplicity of design, ease of miniaturizing, and low sample volume. The commonly observed interest in this group of sensors results from the relatively low production and operating costs as well as good metrological and operational parameters. The signal of their response is a change in current, or potential, which provides wide possibilities of further advanced signal processing at the analogue level. The versatility of these tools ensures a broad spectrum in the sensing of biological and chemical analytes in respect of electrochemical change of electrode/electrolyte interfacial characteristics. The advantage of biosensors over traditional analytical methods will certainly lead to their even greater use in environmental monitoring food safety, medicine, including clinical diagnostics or monitoring and control of industrial processes in the near future.

The selection of the working electrode material and its appropriate modification play a crucial role in the development of sensitive electrochemical platforms for the detection of target molecules. Progress is constantly being observed with the implementation of new advanced platforms for the design of biosensors, such as graphene, carbon nanotubes or nanofibers, nanoclusters, nanoparticles, etc. Due to outstanding advances in nanotechnology, nanomaterial-based signal amplification strategies have an enormous impact on improving parameters such as sensitivity and selectivity of electrochemical sensors and biosensors. The optimal signal amplification strategy can increase the intensity of its response several times.

We are pleased to invite you to broaden the field of electrochemical sensors and biosensors, describing fundamentals and application of sensor technology.

This Special Issue aims to focus on advances in electrochemical sensors and biosensors: the novel strategies in their development technology, future trends, and advanced materials used in the construction of these devices.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but not be limited to) the following:

  • Development of novel sensing layers,
  • Nanomaterials in sensors technology,
  • Novel sensors technology including miniaturization
  • Electrochemical sensors and biosensors for medical application, environmental monitoring, or the food industry.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

The paper proposes a surface plasmon resonance (SPR) biosensor utilizing MXene and a Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) material layer, placed on the Ag metal-based conventional biosensor to detect disease in human teeth. The SPR biosensor works on the principle of attenuated total reflection. The transverse matrix method was utilized for the reflectivity calculation. The thickness of the Ag layer, MXene, and MoS2 were taken as 45, 0.993, and 0.375 nm, respectively. Single-layer MoS2 and two layers of MXene were taken, and the highest sensitivity of the sensor for the enamel, dentin, and cementum was obtained at 83.219 deg/RIU, 91.460 deg/RIU, and 104.744 deg/RIU. MoS2 was used to enhance the biocompatibility of the analyte with the sensing layer. The aqueous solution had been considered as sensing medium. Full article

Neurodegenerative diseases (NDs) are becoming a major global health problem. They constitute an incurable diverse group of disorders characterized by the progressive degeneration of the structure and function of the central or peripheral nervous system. There is an enormous unmet demand worldwide for methods for the early detection of ND biomarkers. The complexity of the molecular mechanisms underlying neuronal degeneration as well as the inhomogeneity of the patient population pose a great challenge for the development of early diagnostic tools. Various analytical technologies have been developed to meet this challenge. Among the various approaches reported so far, biosensors are powerful analytical implements that have been applied to detect biomarkers of NDs. Over the past decade, electrochemical aptasensors have been at the forefront of this development not only thanks to their low cost and simple design but also due to advances in nanomaterials modifying the surface of the transducers involved. The design of electrochemical aptasensors for the detection of ND biomarkers such as α-synuclein, amyloid β peptide, tau protein and human cellular prion protein were summarized and compared. Innovative strategies for increasing their sensitivity and selectivity were also pointed out. Undoubtedly, there is still a need for low-cost, fast and easy-to-use systems for the early detection of NDs. Full article
