Parameters such as the time after clinical use and the various times of procedure employment were factored in. The study concluded that commonly recommended protocols are efficient enough if thoroughly carried out, and a classification of assays and antimicrobial agent widely used was also made. , 2015). Due to the aggressive nature of biofilm infections related to medical instruments, especially the ones which come in contact with extended areas of tissues (mostly epithelium and endothelium), the studies meant to improve the design and antibiofilm characteristics of such devices are still challenging and restless.
