Time-dependent bacterial adhesion forces of four strains of Staphylococcus epidermidis to hydrophobic and hydrophilic surfaces were investigated. Initial adhesion forces differed significantly between the two surfaces and hovered around -0.4 nN. No unambiguous effect of substratum surface hydrophobicity on initial adhesion forces for the four different S. epidermidis strains was observed. Over time, strengthening of the adhesion forces was virtually absent on hydrophobic dimethyldichlorosilane… Expand
