A biosensor is a device that contains a biological, or bioinspired recognition layer with unique specificity toward target analytes, which can be DNA, proteins, and small molecules like glucose, chemical warfare agents or environmental pollutants. The focus on electrochemical sensors and biosensors is growing exponentially, as these detection systems can be easily miniaturized and mass-produced for point-of-care applications. This Special Issue, entitled “Electrochemical Sensors and Biosensors: From Benchtop to Point-of-Care”, aims to highlight the most recent and promising technologies in the field of electrochemical sensors and biosensors. In particular, the development of an electrochemical biosensor may require collaboration between the disciplines of chemistry, biomedical engineering, electronic engineering and medicine. This special issue is intended to be a timely and comprehensive issue on new emerging technologies that are currently being developed by research laboratories world-wide on electrochemical biosensors and biomicrodevices (e.g. DNA sensors, paper-based biosensors, microfluidic biochips, bioMEMS) with emphasis on, but not limited to, point-of-care applications. Research papers, short communications and reviews are all welcome. If the author is interested in submitting a review, it would be helpful to discuss this with the guest-editor before your submission.

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.
