[Bacterial biofilms and resistance to disinfectants].

Abstract

When bacteria grow in close association with solid surface, they constitute a microbial community tight included in the exopolymer glycocalyx. Many laboratory studies have shown that these bacteria are 10 to 100 folds more resistant to disinfectants than the bacteria of the same strain in suspension. Several factors are responsible for this resistance: the… (More)
