Findings from Indian Agricultural Research Institute Provides New Data on Staphylococcus aureus (Green synthesis of silver nanoparticles by Trichoderma harzianum and their bio-efficacy evaluation against Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella ...)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Research findings on Gram-Positive Bacteria are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting originating from New Delhi, India, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Silver nanoparticles were successfully synthesized from agriculturally beneficial fungus Trichoderma harzianum through a simple green and eco-friendly route using cell filtrate. The silver nanoparticles formation was evaluated at different temperatures and concentrations of AgNO3."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Indian Agricultural Research Institute, "The synthesized nanoscale particles were analyzed by UV-vis spectrum, TEM, XRD, SEM and EDS, which revealed that the synthesised nanoparticles had face centred cubic symmetry. Size range (51.10 nm) and stability of the synthesized silver nanoparticles were evaluated by DLS and found stable for three months."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The antibacterial activities of synthesized nanosilver was evaluated against two bacteria; Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella aeruginosa and it was found that bacterial growth was significantly reduced in a dose dependent manner."
