In this study, the minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of AgNO3 against bacteria were investigated in a variety of microorganism culture broths. Broth- and light-dependent MIC values were observed and correlated negatively with nano-Ag speciation development. We advocate here the importance of broth and light standardization in Ag antimicrobial test.
