Phenotypic Assays on Biofilm inhibition by AgNPs. a Different AgNPs concentrations in two-fold serial dilutions were added to C. albicans cells. The IC50 values for inhibition of biofilm formation were calculated as AgNPs 0.089 ppm (b) AgNPs was also added to preformed (24 h) biofilms. The IC50 values for pre-formed biofilm reduction were calculated as AgNPs 0.48 ppm. All experiments were performed in duplicate on three separate occasions. Results represent the means ± standard deviations (SD). c The cytotoxic concentration 50 % (CC50) of AgNPs was measured in HEPG2 cell line. The experiments were performed in triplicate, and the results are presented as the mean ± SE. The CC50 values for cell toxicity were calculated as AgNPs 7.08 ppm
