    Summary of Ph.D. Thesis

    The thesis entitled An approach towards incidence and antimicrobial resistance of bacteria within medical

    device associated biofilms with prevention strategies. deals with the problem of biofilm colonization of

    medical devices which leads to considerable increase in mortality and morbidity in critically ill patients. The

    incidence of biofilm colonization on different devices were found to be very high (
