Silver NPs are substantially more effective than silver ions, enhanced antibacterial properties of silver NPs being demonstrated both in vitro and in vivo.
For these reasons, in this study we investigated the antimicrobial effects of low concentrations of Ag NPs against representative microorganisms of public health concern. Here, we report that different Ag NPs sizes and concentrations can be applied effectively in the control of microorganisms and the prevention of deleterious infections.

An examination of specific cellular organelle-targeting nanotags using combined 3D Raman and SERS imagingPoster
We investigated the specific targeting of endoplasmic reticulum and trans-Golgi network in Chinese hamster ovarian cells using functionalised nanotags. The targeting was examined using the combined 3D SERS and Raman imaging method.
Fluorescent Nanoprobes Confined in a Drop as a novel Sensing Platform for Detection of Metal Species at Trace LevelPoster
In the last years, a great interest has arisen concerning the design and development of new optical probes for the sensitive and selective detection of chemical species making use of miniaturized and environmental friendly methods. In this sense, quantum dots (QDs) and metal nanoclusters (NCs) have important optical properties to be applied in analytical systems as fluorescent probes.READ MORE
