Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The aim of this Special Issue is to collect recent research and developments in the optical biosensing field. Optical detection is one of the most interesting sensing methods, since it allows one to measure the sample without destroing it. For this reason, it is widely used in non-invasive and personalized health monitoring. It also applied to biological research, medical analysis and diagnostics, environmental monitoring, agriculture, food safety, and security. Moreover, the use of bioreceptors can widen the optical detection system applicability and sensitivity, since nature took millions of years to perfect bioreceptors and to reduce artifacts due to the presence of interferents. Papers addressing both topics are strongly encuraged. The manuscripts can deal with, but are not limited to, the following topics:
-Optical sensing of physiological parameters;
-Optical devices for biochemical sensing;
-Optical integrated biosensor systems (lab-on-a-chip);
-Optical systems with microfluidic integration;
-New bio/chemical probes for optical sensors;
-Environmental applications of optical biosensing;
-Optical biosensing applied to agriculture and food monitoring.
Both review articles and original research papers are strongly encouraged.

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.
