Since 2004, nanoComposix has provided monodisperse and unagglomerated silver nanoparticles to thousands of customers. Hundreds of different variants of size, shape, and surface are available as stock products and we have produced over 2000 custom core/shell, biofunctionalized, fluorescent, and antimicrobial silver nanocomposites to meet client specifications.
Silver nanopaticles are widely incorporated into wound dressings, and are used as an antiseptic and disinfectant in medical applications and in consumer goods. Silver nanoparticles have a high surface area per unit mass and release a continuous level of silver ions into their environment. The silver ions are bioactive and have broad spectrum antimicrobial properties against a wide range of bacteria. By controlling the size, shape, surface and agglomeration state of the nanoparticles, specific silver ion release profiles can be developed for a given application.
Incorporation of silver particles into plastics, composites, and adhesives increases the electrical conductivity of the material. Silver pastes and epoxies are widely utilized in the electronics industries. Silver nanoparticle based inks are used to print flexible electronics and have the advantage that the melting point of the small silver nanoparticles in the ink is reduced by hundreds of degrees compared to bulk silver. When scintered, these silver nanoparticle based inks have excellent conductivity.
Silver nanoparticles have unique optical properties because they support surface plasmons. At specific wavelengths of light the surface plasmons are driven into resonance and strongly absorb or scatter incident light. This effect is so strong that it allows for individual nanoparticles as small as 20 nm in diameter to be imaged using a conventional dark field microscope. This strong coupling of metal nanostructures with light is the basis for the new field of plasmonics. Applications of plasmonic silver nanoparticles include biomedical labels, sensors, and detectors. It is also the basis for analysis techniques such as Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) and Surface Enhanced Fluorescent Spectroscopy.
There is increasing interest in utilizing the large scattering and absorption cross sections of plasmonic silver nanoparticles for solar applications. Since the nanoparticles act as efficient optical antennas, very high efficiencies can be obtained when the nanoparticles are incorporated into collectors.
Each batch of silver nanoparticles is extensively characterized using techniques including transmission electron microscopy (TEM), dynamic light scattering (DLS), zeta potential, and UV-Visible spectroscopy. In addition to ensuring that every batch of nanoparticles meets our stringent quality control requirements, customers are provided with batch-specific specification sheets containing representative TEM images, sizing data, hydrodynamic diameter measurements, zeta potential analysis, UV-Visible spectrum, and solution pH.
Silver nanoparticles are provided in two concentrations, NanoXact (0.02 mg/mL) and BioPure (1 mg/mL). At NanoXact concentration, the silver particles are a pale orange or yellow color in solution depending on their size. The BioPure formulation is 50-times more concentrated, extensively purified to remove residual reactants, and opaque. The highly concentrated BioPure formulations are ideal for applications that require high concentrations or low residual reactants including nanotoxicology, environmental studies, and lateral flow assays.Large silver nanoparticles may settle out of solution, but are easily redispersed by simply shaking the storage vial.
Due to their small size and low mass, once nanoparticles bind together it is often impossible to separate them. Consequently, most dried silver nanopowders that are resuspended consist of clusters of 100's of individual nanoparticles. For many plasmonics and biomedical applications, this agglomeration significantly degrades performance. At nanoComposix we have developed custom processing techniques that allow us to concentrate and purify nanoparticles without inducing agglomeration. The particles can be transferred into a variety of different solvents to enable their integration into a wide variety of systems. In addition, we have developed a surface stabilization technique that allows us to produce dried silver nanoparticles that can be redispersed into individual, monodisperse nanoparticles.

Exposure to nanoparticles can occur via water, food, cosmetics, drugs, and drug delivery devices, and can lead to a wide variety of toxicological effects . Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have been rapidly employed in the manufacturing of many products such as healthcare items, room-sprays, pipelines, and washing machines due to its long-standing antibacterial properties [28,29]. It has been termed as a broad-spectrum biocide due to its ability to target a wide array of bacteria . Silver impregnated catheters and wound dressings are used in therapeutic applications. In spite of the wide usage of AgNP in wound dressings, which can cause easy entry into the cells, very few reports on the toxicity of AgNPs are available. Several recently published reports state that despite the many promises of AgNPs, there are many unknown risks which have not been properly assessed prior to their high industrialized usage. Silver (Ag) is classified as an environmental hazard by the EPA because it is more toxic to aquatic plants and animals than any other metal except for mercury. Even if a nanoparticle itself is not especially toxic, silver nanoparticles increase the effectiveness of delivering toxic silver ions to locations where they can cause toxicity. In the near future there is a risk of enhanced bioavailability of the nanoparticles in the environment .

In the present investigation, we studied the clastogenic/genotoxic effects of AgNPs in V. faba root-tips using mitotic index (MI), structural chromosomal aberrations (CA) and micronuclei induction (MN) as the toxicological endpoints. We have noted a decrease in the mean mitotic index values in silver nanoparticle-exposed root-tips as compared to the controls. This could be due to a slower progression of cells from S (DNA synthesis) phase to M (mitosis) phase of the cell cycle as a result of AgNP exposure. It has been suggested that the cytotoxicity level can be determined by the decreased rate of the mitotic index . Although it is most likely that this impairment in cell cycle progression is associated with silver nanoparticles toxicity, further experiments are needed to elucidate the biochemical mechanisms involved. At present, there are no published studies assessing the effect of silver nanoparticles on mitotic index in biological systems. As the mitotic index represents the number of dividing cells it accounts for the growth, and any decrease in mitotic index leads to the reduced growth. The reduction in mitotic index may be caused by the effect of the AgNP/test chemical on the microtubule [36,37].
Different types of structural chromosomal aberrations were observed with different concentrations of silver nanoparticle suspensions. The increase in the induction of structural chromosomal aberrations was found to be statistically significant in exposed root-tips compared to control. Out of all types of aberrations, chromatid breaks, isochromatid breaks, acentric fragments, minutes, translocations and gaps were the predominant forms of CA observed. These results are in agreement with the reports of [19,38]. Increases in percentage of aberrations in root meristems indicates genotoxic effects of test chemicals . Number of factors can be contributing to the increased chromosomal aberrations. The most important one is due to the interference of chemicals during DNA repair. Different types of chromosomal aberrations by the chemicals/nanoparticles represent their clastogenicity. The chromosome gaps which involve only the loss of chromatin may be due to the loss of protein part of the chromosome . The chromatid breaks, which represent the DNA double strand breaks that may not have undergone the G2 repair. Any such irreversible DNA damages will lead to the chromosomal aberrations. Irreversible DNA damage would be produced whenever the trapped cleavable complex collides with a replication fork, independently of whether it is euchromatic or heterochromatic regions of the chromosomes that are being replicate . Root tips frequently used for cytogenetic studies in the past five decades were from Allium cepa and Vicia faba [31,33] which are excellent materials for clastogenicity studies of physical and chemical agents. 59ce067264
