  • anti-biofilm properties
  • To probe the anti-biofilm properties of iron ions, the researchers exposed polycarbonate films to iron-ion beams of two different energies. (natureasia.com)
  • The scientists tested the anti-biofilm properties of ion-treated polymer films and compared them with those of untreated polymer films by growing Salmonella typhi , a disease-causing bacterium, on both films. (natureasia.com)
  • All of the tested compounds exhibited stronger anti-biofilm properties as compared to those of the tested lens solutions. (mdpi.com)
  • ability to form a biofilm
  • Based on these characteristics, the ability to form a biofilm in the airway of its mammalian host is considered to be a likely contributing factor to the recurrent and/or chronic nature of NTHI-induced diseases of the respiratory tract ( 10 , 11 , 14 , 29 , 34 ). (asm.org)
  • Quantitative
  • The quantitative analysis of biofilm formation was performed using crystal violet staining followed by spectrophotometry measurement after addition of decoloring solution. (ijmcm.ir)

  • Microscopic
  • Microscopic analysis of vaginal mucosal biofilm formation in vivo and ex vivo . (nih.gov)
  • Biomass measurements and microscopic observations further revealed that after 24 h of incubation, FB was more than twofold thicker than biofilms grown under static conditions. (springer.com)
  • Microscopic analyses revealed that the surface of these biofilms was extremely compact and wrinkled, unlike the open hyphal layer typically seen in 24 h static biofilms. (springer.com)

  • The principal aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) in eradication of bacterial biofilms formed on commercially available contact lenses. (mdpi.com)
  • Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimum biofilm eradication concentration (MBEC) of the compounds were determined. (mdpi.com)
  • whereas
  • IV3014 displayed hairy biofilms with horizontal fibres, whereas Roseovarius sp. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Gallaher and colleagues later used a proteomic approach to identify 265 proteins, including OMPs P5 and P6, in the biofilm matrix of an NTHI biofilm produced by on-filter growth ( 15 ), whereas Webster et al. (asm.org)
  • Whereas, the bacterial biofilm formed with dynamic conditions with refreshing media after 24, 72, and 120 h demonstrated decline in growth at 2.5-, 2.6-, and 3.3-log, respectively. (springer.com)
  • commercially available
  • Anti-biofilm activity of the antimicrobial peptides determined at different temperatures (25 °C and 37 °C) were compared with the effectiveness of commercially available contact lens solutions. (mdpi.com)
  • By employing this approach a wide range of pure culture biofilms from different habitats were examined using the commercially available lectins. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • Screening of biofilm systems with the commercially available lectins by fluorescence lectin bar-coding (FLBC) has been used already in a number of studies [ 10 , 14 , 15 , 16 , 17 , 18 , 19 , 20 ] and served as the basis of subsequent fluorescence lectin-binding analysis (FLBA).

  • strain
  • We have also observed an increased production of the quorum sensing signal AI-2 in the znuABC strain sensing zinc deprivation, that may further contribute to the reduced ability to form biofilms. (rsc.org)
  • In some of the dual and quadruple strain biofilms new exopolysaccharide monomers were detected which were not present in the pure strain samples. (diva-portal.org)
  • visualize
  • At 48 h post-inoculation, vaginae were excised and the tissue was processed for SEM or CM. For CM, vaginae were stained with calcoflour white (blue) to visualize yeast/hyphae, and with ConA-TR to visualize biofilm ECM. (nih.gov)
