Strains of Listeria monocytogenes differ in their ability to form biofilms. The objectives of this study were to determine whether genetically related strains have similar biofilm-forming capacities and what effect nutrient concentration has on the ability of different strains to produce biofilms. Biofilms of 30 strains of L. monocytogenes, obtained from a variety of sources were grown on stainless steel in tryptic soy broth (TSB) or in a 1:10 dilution of TSB (DTSB) for 24 h at 32 degrees C… CONTINUE READING
