a Modification processes of the silica nanoparticles. Dye-SiNPs were synthesized via the reverse microemulsion technique, followed by being coated with PEG and avidin immobilization. Then, dual aptamer-functionalized dye-doped silica nanoparticles (Dual-SiNPs) were synthesized by modifying MUC1 aptamer and HER2 aptamer onto Dye-SiNPs through biotin-avidin interactions. b Schematic illustration of Dual-SiNPs for highly sensitive detection of MUC1(+) and HER2(+) breast cancer cells. MUC1(+) or HER2(+) breast cancer cells were selectively enriched and separated by dual aptamer-modified magnetic beads followed by being detected with Dual-SiNPs
