Silver nanoparticle based organic sanitizer
Hand hygiene is the principal factor in the prevention of nosocomial infections. Onthe other hand, compliance with recommended hand hygiene programs by hospital staff isquite low. In fact, it has been reported that poor hand hygiene is responsible for 40% ofinfections transmitted in hospitals.At present, prevention of nosocomial infections is centeredon rational use of antibiotics and sterilization and disinfection of the hospital environment.
Silver and gold Nanoparticles are rapidly emerging as effective solutions to a variety of issues related to COVID-19, from theranostics (therapy plus diagnostics) to disinfection to imaging. The relevance of nanoparticles is owing to their size (less than 100 nm), which is comparable to that of COVID-19 virus, and a plethora of functionalities such as targeting and drug delivery that can be tailored.
To be acceptable in the hospital environment, disinfectants must act independently ofthe number of bacteria and must also be easy to use, non-volatile, not harmful to staff,patients and equipment, free from unpleasant smells and should be effective within arelatively short time.Concentration of the disinfectant used and duration of action appear toplay a major role in its effectiveness.
Silver based nanomaterials exhibit strong bactericidal effect on many species ofbacteria while exhibiting low toxicity towards animal cells. AgNPs are fast acting andeffective at quite low concentrations.These characteristics make silver nanoparticles(AgNPs) an attractive candidate as a prospective disinfectant that can be used to prevent COVID-19 infections.
Silver nanoparticles have been found to be an effective antiviral which act against many deadly viruses like HIV, Hepatitis B, Herpes simplex virus, Influenza virus, and so on. Research by scientists Ag NP-based materials will be able to prevent the contact infection of health care workers (HCWs), besides preventing patient infection. Thus colloidal silver on which the technology of the sanitizers can help arrest Covid -19 spread by blocking the RNA replication and infectivity by blocking the surface glycoproteins.
Silver nanoparticle based organic sanitizer perfectly ensures clean hands and forms a protective antibacterial layer on the skin for 8 hours. Silver nanoparticles eliminate all known microbes, building immunity against airborne germs, bacteria and infections viruses. Castor oil deeply nourishes and moistens delicate skin. Your hands are purified, hydrated and protected.
