Paper Abstract

We assume that the effectiveness of phototherapy against microorganisms may be increased if together with the photosensitizer a photocatalyst will be used. It was found that the combination of TiO2-nanoparticles and Brilliant Green at two-wavelength irradiation with blue (405 nm) and red (625 nm) light provides a strong antimicrobial effect on standard and clinical strains of Staphylococci.
