Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Living cells maintain life functions by responding quickly and with great sensitivity to changes in the external environment. Consequently, sensors using live cells are thought to be able to perform analyses faster and with more sensitivity than previously possible. Cell-based sensors can be roughly divided into two types. The first uses microorganisms such as Escherichia coli or yeast as sensing elements (Microbial cells). The second type uses human and animal cells (Mammalian cells). The first type can be cultivated rather easily and has the advantages of being inexpensive and portable. The second type is more complex but has the advantage of potentially being used with human subjects. Most research in this area is concentrated on the first type, microbial sensors, but research on sensors that use mammalian cells has recently become more widespread. Live cell-based sensors may potentially be used as an evaluation technology in medical and pharmaceutical fields, as well as for cytotoxicity inspection of medical supplies, nanomaterials, biomaterials, environmental factors and other materials. The special issue of the journal Sensors will cover these different types of live cell-based sensors and applications for these different fields.
