Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The lateral flow immunoassay (LFIA) method is one of the most successful and versatile strategies in point-of-need applications. Among the many types of immunoassay-based tests, the lateral flow immunoassays embody the ideal technique to be used in a decentralized setting, with convenience as a testing strategy thanks to its simplicity, rapidity, cost-effectiveness, and lack of requirement for sophisticated equipment or technical expertise. The past decades have witnessed a terrific evolution in lateral flow immunoassay technologies, and lateral flow immunoassays are becoming well suited to replace laboratory-based immunoassays in point-of-care testing locations. The Special Issue, titled "Quantitation in Lateral Flow Immunoassays: Self-Contained Reading to Stand Alone Instruments and Cellphones”, regroups the various innovation attempts in order to bring more versatile features (proof-of-value) to conventional lateral flow immunoassays, such as the ability to quantitate; thus, enabling new medical niche markets to be served, including POCT at home. Quantitation can be done by creating new system configurations, adapting instrumentation to provide quantitative data on the signals produced, and finally how cellphones will enable home monitoring and their connection to the cloud/artificial intelligence/big data ecosystem.

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. Biosensors is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
