Effectiveness of mechanical cleaning,
antibiotics, and induction heating on
eradication of Staphylococcus aureus in
mature biofilms

Here we used a mature seven- day biofilm model of Staphylococcus aureus, exposed to anti-biotics up to an additional seven days, to establish the effectiveness of either mechanical cleaning or antibiotics or non- contact induction heating, and which combinations could eradicate S. aureus in mature biofilms.
