Special Issue "Sensors for Biomedical, Environmental and Food Monitoring Applications"
A special issue of Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2017)
Detection methods include various techniques, such as electric (conductometric, dielectric impedance, etc.), electrochemical (amperometric, voltammetric, potentiometric, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy), optical (Surface Plasmon Resonance, Raman spectroscopy, etc.), or even piezoelectric or thermal detection. All these approaches have earned considerable interest in recent years, and they show great promise for a wide range of applications in biological research, medical diagnostics, environmental monitoring or food monitoring applications.
We invite, for this “Sensors for Biomedical, Environmental and Food Monitoring Applications” Special Issue, manuscripts dealing with different detection methods-based sensors for application fields mentioned above, while not being limited to those, which will be or not presented in the frame of the International Conference “IC-ANMBES 2016, Brasov, Romania” (http://sciforum.net/conference/icanmbes). Both original research and review articles are welcome. Original research papers that describe the development, characterization/evaluation, simulations and utilization of platforms for detection of biological active or toxic compounds in complex samples with potential applications in medical analysis and diagnosis, environmental or food monitoring are of interest. Reviews should provide an up-to-date and critical overview of state-of-the-art of platforms and detection mechanisms, especially those used for sensing. The manuscripts can deal with microfluidics and point-of-care microdevices, optical fibers, novel materials electrodes and surface functionalization strategies for the detection of specific (bio)molecules in complex samples or new concepts and fundamental studies with potential relevance to sensory detection. Please feel free to contact us and send us your suggestions that you would like to discuss beforehand. We look forward to and welcome your participation in this Special Issue.

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.
