Introduction: In this study, the antimicrobial activity of biologically synthesized zinc (Zn) and copper (Cu) nanoparticles was investigated on gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, pathogens, and resistant and common nosocomial infections.
Material & Methods: Intially, zinc oxide and copper nanoparticles were synthesized using Xanthomonas campestris and Pseudomonas stutzeri bacteria, respectively. To investigate the effect of different concentrations of nanoparticles on bacteria using the macrodilution method, concentrations of 0.01, 0.1, 0.5, 1, and 1.5% of Zn and Cu nanoparticles (culture medium + nanoparticles) were prepared and were added to the respective bacteria at a concentration of 105 cell/ml. Containers containing treated media (bacteria + nanoparticles) and control media were placed in a shaker incubator. Afterward, the optical density (OD) of treatment and positive control and negative control media were determined.
(Ethic code: IR.ILAM.REC.1401.008)
Findings: The results of statistical analysis showed that Zn and Cu nanoparticles, at a concentration of 0.5%, were able to remove almost all (100%) Klebsiella pneumoniae, Acinetobacter baumannii, Staphylococcus aureus bacteria and were bacteriostatic at the concentration of 0.1%.
Discussion & Conclusion: The results obtained from the determination of antibacterial properties of nanoparticles showed a direct relationship between the concentration of nanoparticles and the percentage of bacterial removal.
Keywords: Acinetobacter baumannii, Bacteriostatic, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Macrodilution, Nanoparticle, Pseudomonas stutzeri, Xanthomonas campestris, Staphylococcus aureus
