Silver nano particles
Overview

Metallic silver in the form of silver nano particles has made a remarkable comeback as a potential antimicrobial agent. The use of silver nanoparticles is also important, as several pathogenic bacteria have developed resistance against various antibiotics. Hence, silver nanoparticles have emerged with diverse medical applications ranging from silver based dressings, silver coated medicinal devices, such as nano-gels, nano-lotions, etc.

The present technology offers a simple method for producing nano silver coated medical textiles while sterilizing them in an autoclave. Hence it offers a cheaper alternative to prevailing products of similar attributes in the market.
