Nanotechnology has provided tools, methods, and materials that can be readily exploited for biosensor construction. Lab-on-chips, for example, may have become a reality for commercial systems; hand-held devices could be massively produced for field measurements; noninvasive monitoring for disease management might be successful in the near future. We invite authors to contribute original research articles or comprehensive review articles covering the current state-of-the-art and the future trends in the design of nanostructured biosensors for applications in environmental monitoring, food quality, clinical diagnostics, drug discovery, and disease monitoring. This special issue aims to cover a broad range of subjects, from device design and assembly to analytical development, implementation and commercialization prospects. The format of welcomed articles includes full papers, communications, and reviews.

Title: Carbon Nanodots in Electrochemical Affinity Biosensing
Author: Paloma Yánez-Sedeño, Susana Campuzano and José M. Pingarrón
Abstract: Carbon nanodots (CNDs) are new and interesting members of carbon nanomaterials family which have attracted great attention due to their unique electrical, magnetic, and optical properties and demonstrated to contribute significantly in the development of electrochemical affinity biosensors with improved performance. Considering the great progress and interesting features arisen in the last years, this review addresses, through discussion of recent selected examples, the potential of these promising carbon nanostructures using either as signal tags or as electrode surface modifiers in electrochemical affinity biosensing strategies. The particular role of these nanomaterials in the highlighted approaches, their preparation, and the electrochemical platform designs, as well as the unique advantages they provide in the electrochemical biosensing of relevant analytes are critically discussed. Unmet challenges, research opportunities and future development trends in this rapidly evolving field are also outlined.
