A biosensor made using platinum nanoparticles has been developed that could enable doctors to combat diabetes more effectively than ever before.
The sensor is able to detect glucose with much greater efficiency than existing technology and was developed by a research team at University of Arkansas (UA) who discovered that nanotubes which are coated with platinum nanoparticles are much more sensitive than standard nanotubes.
