Special Issue Information
The special issue on "Pathogen Sensors" will be a compendium of some of the most recent research on "Pathogen Sensors" including but not limited to developing technologies to detect and/or characterize pathogenic agents related to plant, food, soil, animal, and human systems. Thus we set to address biosensors based on electrochemical, optical, mass, acoustic, magnetic, and immuno-based concepts addressing any aspect of detection in biology including sample preparation methodologies. Biomemitic sensors and research exploring pathogen capturing molecules besides standard antibodies, such as aptamers, peptides, carbohydrate-lipid-based linkers are also of interest. Industry standards on biosensors need to be addressed, articles dealing with biosensor standardization will be entertained.
