Development of facile and sensitive bioassays is important for many point-of-care applications. In this study, we fulfilled such demand by synthesizing Pt-decorated magnetic nanozymes and developing a bioassay based on unique properties of the newly synthesized nanozymes. Fe3O4-Pt/core-shell nanoparticles (MPt/CS NPs) with various compositions were synthesized and characterized. Fe3O4 NP itself is a good nanozyme with catalytic activity superior to that of natural enzymes, but catalytic… CONTINUE READING
