Biosensors are devices for detecting the presence, and oftentimes the concentration, of an analyte using an analyte-specific biological receptor that is intimately connected to a signal transducer and signal reader. Signal is generated when the analyte and receptor specifically interact, and the signal is finally reported by a reader. Since their inception, biosensors have played a major role in various forms of diagnosis, from infectious diseases to cancer to chronic ailments. The advantages of biosensors over classical or conventional methods include point-of-care utility, reduced size, rapid results, high sensitivity and specificity, affordability, accessibility, simplicity of operation, potential for multiplex analysis, and adaptability with other devices. This Special Issue on “Biosensors-Based Diagnostics” will cover all aspects of biosensor devices (biological receptors, signal transducers, and signal readers) and their diagnostic applications, such as for infectious diseases, pathogen detection, antimicrobial resistance, biomarker monitoring, and other related areas of concern.

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. Diagnostics 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 1400 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.
