Special Issue "Label-Free Biosensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 September 2018)
The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together researchers active in the development of biosensors based on label-free technologies, methods or protocols. Label-free biosensors have attracted intense research efforts due to their advantages and their promise to provide analytical information and, often, real-time kinetic analysis, in a faster and cheaper mode without interferences from labels.
Works on classical label-free technologies, such as surface plasmon resonance or QCM, are welcome as well as those based on innovative techniques such as fully electronic readouts or whispering gallery modes. Manuscripts on the overcoming of challenges, related, for example, to real-world applications of label-free biosensors will be also appreciated.
I cordially invite you to share your work, expertise and insights, with the sensor-research community in the form of research articles and reviews for this Special Issue.
Dr. Sara Tombelli
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.
