The development of low cost and disposable sensors for biomedical and environmental monitoring is attracting the scientific as well as commercial world. Early diagnosis of diseases, detection of toxins in food, feed and water are important aspects of present-day healthcare systems. Sensitive and selective detection of biomarker proteins, virus antigens, disease-specific antibodies, nucleic acids, clinically relevant low molecular weight analytes, endocrine disruptases, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other environmental pollutants is of great significance in the smart sensing technology of the point-of-care era.
The present Special Issue focuses on label-free sensor/biosensor devices/platforms for highly sensitivity physico-chemical transducers, which are feasible for miniaturization with special reference to biomedical and environmental applications.

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. Sensors 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.
