Sensors have gained a wide theoretical interest and practical applications in biomedicine thanks to their simplicity in operation, higher sensitivity, ability to perform multiplex analysis, and capability to be integrated into different functions by the same chip.
Over the past decade, the field of clinical diagnostics has expanded rapidly and in the coming years it will continue to be of critical importance to public health worldwide.
Biomedical sensors are an essential tool in the detection and monitoring of a wide range of medical conditions from cancer to Parkinson’s disease as well as in the monitoring of drug responses.
In an era of decentralized health systems, portable, faster, and low-cost devices are highly preferred to time-consuming and expensive centralized laboratory analysis.
The aim of the Special Issue is to focus on the most recent progress in the development of sensors in this field for early diagnostics and for routine point-of-care health monitoring. Papers should address the development of novel sensors and biosensors for single and multiple analyte detection with particular interest for minimally-invasive wearable sensors and for miniaturized sensor devices which can provide lab-on-a chip analysis systems.
Both review articles and original research papers are welcome.

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 1800 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.
