A system for delivering nano-metallic alloys to infected cells in a patient is disclosed. The nano-metallic alloy may be formed from binary, triple, or quadruple elemental compositions complexed in predetermined percentages of monosodium phosphate monohydrate and disodium phosphate heptahydrate. The nano-metallic alloy may be capable of eliminating infectious microorganisms within infect cells or legions without harming the cells or tissues. The system may also include a method of administering a predetermined concentration of the nano-metallic alloy in the complexing solution in the vicinity of the infected cells of legions to kill the foreign matter.
