The continual attempts in developing highly sensitive biosensor platforms endorse early diagnosis as key to better treatment. With the rapid development of nanotechnology, a wide range of nanomaterials has been developed that realise improved biosensor performance. Particularly, carbon nanomaterials, such as carbon nanotubes, graphene, polymeric films, etc., have been used extensively in various biosensor applications owing to their unique electron conducting properties and low cost. Over 50,000 carbon based biosensors research articles have been published in the last year, addressing various features of biosensors, such as improved sensitivity/selectivity, multiplexing, single molecule detection, etc.
This Special Issue on “Carbon Biosensors in Diagnostics” aims at bringing the collection of recent research and review articles focusing on all aspects of sensor science including but not limited to the state of the art, electrode fabrication, surface functionalization, signal amplification, microfluidic devices and novel transduction techniques that selectively sense chemical or biological species or processes. Articles may focus on developing sensors for commercialisation or new detection strategies for improving the existing bioanalysis. We invite you to be part of this Special Issue and contribute to the field of Biosensors.

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.
