Call for papers

A special issue of Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220), "Electrochemical Sensors and (Bio)assays for Heath Applications", is guest edited by several GRAQ members.

Special Issue Information:

Dear Colleagues,

The development of analytical methodologies based on electrochemical (bio)sensing tools is constantly growing but remains a current challenge despite their high sensitivity, simplicity, and the availability of user-friendly portable equipment. Different types of transducers must be tested to develop innovative (bio)assays (e.g., immuno-, geno- and enzymatic sensors; molecular imprinted polymers (MIPs)). The possibility to integrate nanomaterials in sensor construction leads to novel sensing strategies by exploring their unique characteristics. The possibility to use them for in situ single- and multiparametric control increases their demand for a wide range of applications in health care.

This Special Issue will include original research articles and state-of-the-art reviews from academia and industry regarding electrochemical (bio)sensors or (bio)assays for heath applications. Manuscripts with a focus on (bio)sensors and (bio)assays for the early diagnosis of diseases or for patient monitoring and follow-up are welcome. Particular attention will be given to manuscripts that improve the analytical performance and robustness of sensing devices.
