"SARPU® series are nano-silver colloid which has an antibacterial effect against bacteria, yeasts, mould and fungi. ABC NANOTECH makes SARPU® series with a unique nanoparticle technology. Silver ion or nanoparticle of silver destroys the cell wall of the bacteria for nucleus of bacteria not to grow. This phenomenon informs us of why SARPU® series work as an antimicrobial. According to trend of antimicrobial products, consumers are pursuing both safety and effectiveness of antibacterial applications and prefer ecofriendly products. Since SARPU® series, a kind of nanometallic antibiotic agent, provide safety and easy applicability to products and don't give rise to any side effect, they will be a future-leading antimicrobial. For example, SARPU® has already demonstrated the superiority of quality internationally. SARPU® is the first registered nano silver on the list of OEKO-TEX, International Association for Research and Testing in Field of Textile Ecology, located in Switzerland."

"This study investigated the acute toxicity of three types of silver nanoparticles and AgNO3 in Daphnia magna. The experimental results revealed that the different types of nanoparticles and silver ions produced distinct dose-dependent mortalities. In particular, the toxicity of the nano silver powder dispersed by sonication was lower than that of the colloidal silver nanoparticles [SARPU]. Therefore, the results suggested that the toxic responses were related more to the chemical characteristics and aggregation of the different nanoparticles. Future studies will investigate the chronic toxicity of different silver nanoparticles using D. magna." Saba Asghari
