Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent times, the advancement of technology, innovation, and device miniaturization have caused a fundamental paradigm shift in the scientific development, integration, and application of different advanced gas sensing technologies for disease diagnosis and monitoring. As technology continues to advance and more research is being conducted, emerging non-invasive gas sensing technologies for disease diagnosis and monitoring are revolutionizing the traditional translational medicine and treatment. The detection and analysis of disease biomarker gases in body fluids such as blood, urine, sweat, saliva, and, exhaled breath, as well as combinations of all, offer a promising avenue for non-invasive early disease diagnosis and screening, regular monitoring, and personalized treatment. Apart from the benchtop methodologies including gas chromatography and spectroscopic techniques, gas sensors based on miniaturized devices, such as optical, amperometric, chemiresistors, impedance, electronic, piezoelectric, and catalytic sensors, are becoming the most exciting gas sensing approaches for many reasons.

This Special Issue on “Advances in Gas sensing Technologies for Disease Diagnosis Application” aims at conquering the latest technological advancements in gas sensing methodologies, novel approaches, and real-time applications in disease diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment. This Special Issue covers topics including, but not limited to, chemical, optical, electronic nose, physical, and catalytic sensors for the detection and analysis of disease biomarkers for disease diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment. Both original research papers and review articles are welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2600 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.
