Silverperoxide (hydrogen peroxide stabilised with AgNP) is considered superior in eliminating biofilm compared to peracetic/peroxyacetic acid, due to oligofynamic synergetic action. Your comments pl?.

Good question. I have also read that Silverperoxide eliminates biofilm more effectively in the lab. However, it is important to consider other parameters when thinking about effectiveness. Two things that come to mind with silver is cost and toxicity. Silver nanoparticles are capable of producing high local concentrations of silver ions depending on microenvironmental conditions, there could be toxic effects when considering biofilms during infection or in the environment. If large areas need to be coated to reduce biofilm then cost could also increase a lot.
