Special Issue "Microdevices and Sensors Based on Polymeric Materials for Human Health Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2021.
Interests: lab-on-a-chip; biosensors; surface functionalization; biomaterials; biophysical and biomolecular technologies
Interests: scanning probe microscopy; molecular interactions; surface functionalization; biosensors
Polymeric microfluidic devices and sensors are increasingly emerging as valid and powerful tools for many applications in biomedical, agri-food and environmental fields. Human health greatly benefits from these devices and sensors, as they improve sensitivity and ease of use, lower costs and allow the spread of laboratories in real settings. This Special Issue welcomes the submission of both review and original research articles related to polymeric microdevices and sensors with applications for human health. The Special Issue is open to contributions with topics considering nanostructured materials, biofunctional materials and surfaces, sensors for human health analysis and monitoring, microdevices for food safety and smart polymeric materials and microfluidic devices. Original contributions that look at integrated microdevices and biosensors are also welcome.Dr. Cristina Potrich

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 2200 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.
