The presence of biofilm is reportedly present in 60-100% of non-healing wounds (WUWHS Biofilm Position Paper, 2016). While the role that biofilm plays in the chronicity of wounds is still not fully investigated, it is becoming widely accepted that hard-to-heal wounds contain biofilm - and somehow its presence delays or prevents healing. 

Therefore the management of biofilm in chronic wounds is rapidly becoming a primary object of wound care.
