Chitosan is a natural biopolymer and is the main structural component of the cuticles of crustaceans, insects and molluscs and the cell walls of certain fungi. It is abundant in nature and is naturally antimicrobial. A natural fibre has been created with chitosan and is being used as a wound dressing, namely Kytocel. It is an absorbent fibre dressing that is claimed to be biodegradable and biocompatible. This study was undertaken to assess the antimicrobial properties of the microfibre wound dressing using a variety of methods commonly used to assess other antimicrobial dressings.
