The products of "ELIRI" SA were used as raw material for fabrication of the gold nanoelectrodes. The experimental project named „Nanomole Silver Detection in Chloride – Free Phosphate Buffer Using Platinum and Gold Micro and Nanoelectrodes”was done by Prabhakar Sidambaram1 and John Colleran2.
The aim of the project was determination of ultra-low concentrations of silver requires reliable, reproducible measuring using sensitive analytical techniques.
In that work, they reported on the determination of ultra-low concentrations of silver in chloride-free phosphate buffer solution (PB, pH 7.4). Determination of ultra-low concentrations of silver in chloride-free PB provides the scope to explore the mechanism of action of bioinorganic silver-based anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-cancer drugs in cell media for in vitro and, potentially, in vivo analysis.
