Detection of biofilm formation among the clinical isolates of Staphylococci: an evaluation of three different screening methods.

Abstract

PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate three methods for detection of biofilm formation in staphylococci. METHODS For detection of biofilm formation, 152 clinical isolates of Staphylococcus spp. were screened by tissue culture plate (TCP), Tube method (TM) and Congo red agar (CRA) method. RESULTS Of the 152 Staphylococcus spp. 88(57.8… (More)
