Figure 6

(a) Average diameter of bacterial loop, 6 mm, indicates no antibacterial effect: (1) Pure EVOH nanofiber, (2) nanofiber containing gentamicin, (3) nanofiber containing Ag nanoparticle, and (4) nanofibers containing iodine. (b) Averaged bacteriostatic loop diameter plotted as a function of Ag concentration.
