Special Issue "Sensors for Cell Analysis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 July 2018).
Interests: cell analysis; electrochemical devices; bioMEMS/NEMS; organs on a chip; cell culture platforms; micro/nanochemistry
Cell analysis has received considerable interest for drug discovery, cancer cell research, stem cell research, environmental monitoring, healthcare, and tissue engineering. For cell analysis, several kinds of sensors have been developed. Especially, MEMS/NEMS-based sensors and micro/nanochemistry-based sensors are progressing rapidly. These sensors are utilized for high-throughput cell screening and highly-sensitive assays. In addition, paper-based devices and small chip devices have been developed for low-cost assays and the simple process of cell analysis. This Special Issue focuses on research and development in the field of sensors and methods for cell analysis. The Special Issue will cover research topics from single cell analysis to evaluation of three-dimensional cultured cells resembling organs. I will also welcome microfluidics, electrochemical devices, optical sensors, organs on a chip containing sensing systems, and more.
I would like to invite you to submit both original research papers and review articles on sensors for cell analysis.Dr. Kosuke Ino
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.
