This was formed by scraping sheets of old linen 22 Advanced textiles for wound care with sharp knives to raise a fibrous ‘nap’ on one surface, increasing the absorbency of the cloth but decreasing its tensile properties. Initially a manual process, a lint-making machine was developed in the fi rst half of the 19th century which used new, specially woven, fabric for the purpose. This resulted in a more consistent product with, it is assumed, a considerably lower bioburden! Originally lint was formed from linen but this was eventually replaced by cotton by the middle of the 20th century.

The apparatus should permit microbiological examination of the local environment during the course of the test. 2 The Wrap rig. • The test equipment should allow the pressure beneath the dressing to be varied if this is considered desirable. 12 Essentially the apparatus consists of a number of separate components. The wound model The Wrap rig model consists of a two-part stainless-steel plate (the ‘wound bed’), mounted on a Perspex table (Fig. 2). An electronically controlled heating mat beneath the steel plate keeps the plate and test sample under examination within a narrow temperature band.
