Immunoanalytical methods have seen outstanding growth in recent years, driven in large part by the need for faster, more sensitive, more portable, and easy-to-use systems to detect cancers biomarkers for clinical diagnosis, persistent organics pollutants in environmental and industrial monitoring, or biochemical weapons of terrorism. At the same time, advances in the field of microelectronics, microfabrication, printing, microfluidics or molecular biology, genetic engineering, make today more than ever biosensors attractive for industrial processes and commercial applications. In this field, electrochemical immunosensors offer inherent advantages, among which miniaturization, mass fabrication, low cost and potential decentralized analysis, low power, easy manufacturing, multiplexing, high sensitivity, real time detection, compatibility with advanced semiconductor technology, simplicity, and ease of use.
A current challenge is the development of highly sensitive electrochemical immunosensors, including electrochemical transistors, through the use of micro- and printing technologies. This Special Issue of Sensors will highlight original strategies in terms of biofunctionalization of semiconductors, nanomaterials or supported nanostructures or inks, as well as original transduction mode (using a label or not, with an external reagent or not, etc.), in order to promote the exchange of ideas between scientists and engineers working in this field.

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 1800 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.
