This work describes the implementation of a new assay named the BioFilm Ring Test to evaluate the ability of bacteria to form biofilms. This assay is based on the immobilisation (or not) of magnetic beads embedded by bacterial aggregates or mats (patented concept). It is realised on modified polystyrene 96-wells microtiter plates with individual 8-wells slides. The kinetic of biofilm formation of four bacterial species, Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus carnosus and… CONTINUE READING
