    Biofilm Experiments

      Biofilm Definition

      A biofilm is a thin self-protective resistant layer (film) of microorganisms like bacteria, yeasts or fungi that form on solid or liquid surfaces and on living organism tissue and are resistant to conventional disinfection agents and antibiotics.
