12 12 Computer Mouse IOGEAR's Personal Security Mouse

13 13 Antibacterial Athletic Socks Eliminate smelly feet with antibacterial and antifungal socks.

14 14 Cotton Sheets AgActive sheet sets are not only comfortable, but they kill bacteria too! /.htm

15 15 Washing Machine Silver Nano washing machine comes with a silver wash option.

16 16 Today's Activities Make nanoparticles. Soak filter in nanoparticles. “Inoculate” plate. Check results.

17 17 How to Make Silver Nanoparticles Put 2 ml.5 mM AgNO 3 in a test tube. –Start with a compound that has silver in it. –Our solution is silver nitrate.

18 18 Put 2 ml.5 mM AgNO 3 in a test tube. Heat in boiling water bath for 5 minutes. –Heating it will speed the reaction. How to Make Silver Nanoparticles

19 19 Put 2 ml.5 mM AgNO 3 in a test tube. Heat in boiling water bath for 5 minutes. Add 5 drops of 1% sodium citrate. –Carefully add the sodium citrate; the solution is HOT! –Allows gold to form stable nanoparticles How to Make Silver Nanoparticles

20 20 Put 2 ml.5 mM AgNO 3 in a test tube. Heat in boiling water bath for 5 minutes. Add 5 drops of 1% sodium citrate. Continue heating — wait for silver nanoparticles to form. –Watch for a change in color to indicate the silver has formed. –Let it heat a few more minutes to be sure the color change is complete. How to Make Silver Nanoparticles

21 21 Put 2 ml.5 mM AgNO 3 in a test tube. Heat in boiling water bath for 5 minutes. Add 5 drops of 1% sodium citrate. Continue heating — wait for silver nanoparticles to form. How to Make Silver Nanoparticles

22 22 Growth of Bacteria Bacteria may grow as a group = colony Bacteria may cover surface of plate = lawn

23 23 Bacterial Antibiotic Sensitivity Antibiotics may inhibit the growth of some bacteria. Evidence of this is a “halo”. A halo indicates a zone where bacteria are not present.

24 24 Procedure Cut filter paper into small squares. Place squares in a petri dish and pour silver nanoparticles over them. Let the squares soak for about 10 minutes.

25 25 Procedure Mark the bottom of an agar plate with your initials, divide the bottom into sections, and label. Put 1 to 2 drops of bacterial culture on the plate. Spread the drops.

26 26 Procedure Place your nanoparticle soaked filter paper squares and your control(s) in the designated areas. Incubate your plate for 24 hours at 37ºC.
