Special Issue "Advanced Designs of Materials, Devices and Techniques for Biosensing"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2021.
2. University of Bucharest, Bucharest, Romania
Interests: analysis of the dynamics of living cells and biointerfaces; rapid antibacterial and antifungal susceptibility testing based on (coupled) optical (including optical waveguides); electrical and magnetic assays
Development of functional materials featuring exquisite electrochemical, magnetic and/or plasmonic properties in conjunction with the related analytical techniques, deployed either per se or in combination, are expected to boost the sensitivity of biosensing platforms.
Research in this area could support novel sensing concepts as well as promising biosensing applications in healthcare, early diagnosis, and environmental monitoring.
Sensing approaches at the cutting edge of the chemistry, physics, and biology of functional materials involve either affinity assays with ligands of the target analyte, live cells, or biomimetic structures immobilized onto tailored sensor chips, in 2D or 3D arrangements, or alternatively, coupled with functional materials integrated within the transducing layer(s) of the sensor. Thus, the aim of this Special Issue is to publish and disseminate original research data, review articles, communications, and short notes that focus on new (experimental or theoretical) advances, challenges, and outlooks concerning the design, construction, and characterization of sensing chips/devices and of related analytical techniques for biosensor development.
We invite contributions on topics that include but are not limited to various state-of-the-art biosensing technologies. As Guest Editors, we warmly invite you to submit manuscripts for this Special Issue entitled “Advanced Designs of Materials, Devices and Techniques for Biosensing”.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2000 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.
