Strain variability of the biofilm-forming ability of Salmonella enterica under various environmental conditions.

The biofilm-forming ability of 60 Salmonella enterica strains was assessed at different pH values (3.8-7.0), NaCl concentrations (0.5-8.0%) and temperatures (4-37°C). A total of 4320 biofilm formation tests (60 strains×12 different environmental conditions×6 replicates) were carried out. Biofilm formation was evaluated in tryptone soy broth after 48h of… CONTINUE READING
