The ascending anxiety regarding antimicrobial resistance as well as the
recalcitrant nature of biofilm-associated infections call for the
development of alternative strategies to treat bacterial diseases.
Nanoparticles have been considered as one of the emerging and promising
platforms in this respect. Their unique physical and chemical properties
may lead to fine-tuned interactions between them and bacteria. In this
chapter, we aim to provide an overview on the use of nanoparticles as
antimicrobial agents. Both antibacterial and anti-biofilm activities of
nanoparticles and their current approaches will be reviewed. The in vitro methods that are used to evaluate the potency of nanoparticles as antimicrobial agents will be discussed in detail.
