The development of biofilms in static plates was monitored. Glass coupons were placed on agar covered with filter paper, which was inoculated with suspended bacteria. The viable cell density, biofilms matrix and biomass were quantified. The method is excellent for adhesion and material studies, due to its simplicity and flexibility.
