Abstract

Summary

The microcolony sizes of the aerobic and anaerobic cutaneous bacterial flora have been examined by a comparison of the number of viable aggregates and the total viable cells per cm of skin. The mean microcolony size was often of the order of 10 cells and counts in excess of 10 cells have been recorded. The importance of these microcolonies in relation to skin disinfection is discussed.
