Biof ilm bacteria Enterobecter agglomerans 53b and Serratia marcescens Serr were isolated from a food processing factory. A bacteriophage (SF153b), which could infect and lyse strain 53b, was isolated from sewage. This has been shown to possess a polysaccharide depolymerase enzyme specific for the exopolysaccharide (EPS) of strain 53b. Using batch culture and chemostatlinked Modified Robbins Device systems it was observed that SF1 53b could degrade the EPS of a mono-species biofilm (strain 53b… CONTINUE READING
