Paper Abstract

Staining technique and NIR LED based setup has been developed for study of photodynamic action (PDA) of Indocyanine Green (ICG) on Staphylococcus Aureus. ICG appeared sufficiently effective PDA photosensitizer acceptable for grampositive bacterial cultures effective suppression. The efficiency of PDA was estimated as 89%.
