Nanolive is pleased to share the newest publication in the Journal of Materials Chemistry B from our users in the University of New South Wales, Syndey, Australia.
Bacterial infections are a growing health issue and leading cause of deaths worldwide, particularly pathogens embedded in biofilms which are difficult to treat and could become chronic. The researchers investigated the green synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) used for antimicrobial activity. However, the size of the AgNPs highly matters in regards to its efficacy in antibiofilm activity.
The 3D Cell Explorer was used to show the evidence of destruction of bacteria cells by polycat@AgNPs.
