Microbecide® Silver Ions

A silver ion is a different form of matter than an atom of silver and has entirely different physical properties. An ion of silver is formed when a single electron is removed from a silver atom causing the ion to have a positive charge. Silver ions diffuse through a solution due to the mutual repulsion they have for each other caused by their ionic charge.


Purchase Microbecide® On-line Superior Antimicrobial Agent
Silver ions (Ag+) have long been known for their ability to destroy bacteria, fungus and viruses, manufacturers have long sought to harness the extraordinary microbiocidal properties of silver ions. Historically, the principal limitation of silver ion products has been the propensity of the silver ions to "precipitate" or "fall" out of the solute phase, resulting in a rapid reduction of ionic concentration, rendering the products ineffective.

Electrolytically-Generated Silver Ions
Microbecide® Silver Ion Complex is electrolytically-generated silver ions stabilized in citric acid as silver dihydrogen citrate. Microbecide® Silver Ion Complex overcomes the problem of precipitation allowing silver ions to remain in solution for extended time periods. Electrolytically-generated silver ions stabilized in citric acid have been proven to be stable for years under actual warehouse conditions.

Increased Bio-Availability
Purchase Microbecide® On-line The molecular properties of silver dihydrogen citrate allow us to engineer Microbecide® Silver Ion Complex with higher stability and efficacy as compared to traditional antimicrobial products on the market today. This advanced nano technology creates highly bio-available silver ions, increasing their antimicrobial action.

The increased biological availability of silver ions contributes to the outstanding effectiveness of Microbecide® Silver Ion Complex against a wide range of gram negative and gram positive bacteria, fungi and viruses.

Overcomes Bacterial Resistance
Organically engineered antimicrobial agents are designed to attack a specific target within a microorganism. Each agent has a unique technique or action it employs against specific enzymes or functions within the microbe. Microorganisms have evolved to resist these attacks, becoming strain resistant to many scientifically engineered agents. Silver dihydrogen citrate is unique in its actions against microorganisms.

Multiple Modes of Action
Silver dihydrogen citrate physically kills microorganisms by multiple modes of action: Purchase Microbecide® On-line

  • The silver ion deactivates structural and metabolic membrane proteins leading to microbial death;

  • Once inside the organism, the silver ion denatures the DNA, which halts the microbe\'s ability to replicate and leads to its death.

  • This multimodal killing action makes silver dihydrogen citrate highly and quickly effective against a broad spectrum of microbes.

    Purchase Microbecide® On-lineResidual Action - 24 Hour Protection
    The residual activity of an antimicrobial is tested by application to a hard non-porous surface, contaminated with standard indicator organisms (Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 6538, Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 15442 and Salmonella cholerasuis ATCC 10708). Quantitative residual results at 24 hours after initial application of silver dihydrogen citrate showed a 99.99% reduction in all three bacteria tested.

    Non-Toxic - Category IV Toxicity Rating

    Purchase Microbecide® On-lineMicrobecide® Silver Ion Complex does not contain quaternary ammonium salts, phenols, glutaraldehyde, chlorine or bromine compounds. Silver dihydrogen citrate is non-caustic, colorless, odorless and does not produce toxic fumes. While highly toxic to bacteria, fungi and viruses it is non-toxic to humans and animals. Based on the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) toxicity categorization of antimicrobial products that ranges from Category I (high toxicity) down to Category IV, silver dihydrogen citrate toxicity rating is in the lowest category, IV, while traditional antimicrobials fall into toxicity categories I and II.
