Screen-printing is a cutting-edge technology for the large-scale, low-cost fabrication of small disposable integrated electrochemical cells. Screen-printed electrodes have allowed the transition away from the large volume conventional electrochemical cells to the more modern analysis of microvolumes of samples, which has greatly contributed to major advances in electroanalysis. As a result of an intense research activity and technological progress made in recent decades, screen-printed electrodes are currently emerging as (bio)sensing portable tools for a plethora of analytical applications in areas as varied as environmental, biomedical, pharmaceutical, agri-food, and industrial, and even in the area of teaching. This is in large part due to the huge potentiality offered by conductive inks constituents of electrodes to be modified at convenience.
One of the major challenges to be resolved by researchers is the design and development of screen-printed electrodes-based sensors and biosensors that can manage point-of-care analysis of real samples, which involves complex sample matrices and wireless communications. For that reason, this Special Issue is intended to provide the most recent research results and emerging concepts in the challenging world of electrochemical (bio)sensors involving screen-printed technologies and portable devices. In essence, this Special Issue will keep the fundamentals of screen-printed electrodes in (bio)sensing, but it will also introduce cutting-edge topics such as wireless electrochemical (bio)sensors, as well as their wide number of applications. Therefore, topics of interest are: Electrochemical sensors and biosensors applications, screen-printed electrodes, wireless electronic (bio)sensors, point-of-care diagnostic devices, combination of mobile communications and electrochemical (bio)sensors, stability and selectivity in complex media, long-term stability without regular maintenance, and reduction of power consumption. New perspectives and challenges for future screen-printed electrodes can also be discussed. Research papers, short communications, and reviews are all welcome.
