Laser-generated ligand-free silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) were tested on their bactericidal and cellular effects using a colloidal and matrix-embedded in vitro model. Significant antimicrobial effects of AgNPs against different bacteria relevant in medicine were observed, accompanied by minimal cytotoxic effects. This indicates a therapeutic window for antibacterial purposes of these AgNPs in medicine.
