The presence of filamentous fungi in drinking water has become an area worthy of investigation with various studies now being published. The problems associated with fungi include blockage of water pipes, organoleptic deterioration, pathogenic fungi and mycotoxins. Fungal biofilm formation is a less developed field of study.

Fungal surface hydrophobicity is involved in several functions in fungal growth and development. Water contact angles measurement has been used as a direct and simple approach for its characterisation in solid cultures. Microsphere adhesion assay is said to be the best method to assess cell hydrophobicity of filamentous fungi. This study aimed to apply(More)
