The Network Day is an interdisciplinary platform for open discussions as well as for the exchange of knowledge and experience on the subject of nano silver and antimicrobial surfaces.
The event is aimed at representatives from industry and applied research as well as service providers from the health and transport sectors. It offers companies and institutes the opportunity to obtain detailed information on current findings about nano silver and its applications in industry. The network partners and the cluster nanotechnology welcome you to the annual network day NanoSilver. Get an insight into our work, find out about current and new applications and make new contacts around the topic of nano silver!
The medical and food the sectors do have high hygiene requirements. Particularly dangerous are resistant bacteria, which can be transmitted to patients or consumers due to a lack of hygiene, but also via food transportation. Nano silver coatings can be a sustainable option in the fight against multidrug-resistant infections. The antimicrobial effect of silver is based on its activity against a broad spectrum of even multi-resistant bacteria, yeasts, fungi and viruses. Becuase of its size, nanosilver shows more effective antimicrobial properties than bulk silver. Active silver ions (Ag +) can be released while the nanosilver particles remain bound in the matrix.
