A high-level aldehyde-free concentrate disinfectant for endoscope and medical instruments sterilization
Silver nanoparticles react with electron-donor groups containing sulfur, oxygen, or nitrogen on the membrane of microorganisms, and thus cause structural changes and disipation of the proton motive force, amd thus lead to the cell death.
- Gradual release of silver nanoparticles resulting in disruption of ATP production and DNA replication
- Direct damage to the cell membranes by silver nanoparticles
- Generation of reactive oxygen specie by silver nanoparticles
Due to the extraordinary antimicrobial properties of silver and the low toxicity of free silver ions to the mammalian cells, the use of this product is expanding day by day.
Thanks to their small size, AgNPs exhibit superior physical and chemical properties. The decrease in size increases the surface-to-volume ratio and thus allows a closer interation with microbial membranes. For the same reason, AgNPs show a higher bactericidal effect than regular disinfectants.
