When conceiving molecular communication (MC) systems, it is of utmost importance to determine the threshold value for decoding bits and producing the less bit error rate (BER). At this optimum, the BER has the smallest amount, and errors in the reception can be minimized, thereby improving the minimal throughput of molecular means. Despite its importance, prior research still presents little applicability and insights obtaining of the optimal threshold for real testbeds. Filling this gap, in this paper, we feature a low-complex algorithm for the optimal threshold in single-input single-output (SISO) testbeds. Using a cross-correlation method, we assess a threshold close to the optimal, where the BER results are close to the minimum achievable.
