Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy of biofilm formed by S. pseudintermedius strain DSM 25713. Biofilm was allowed to form for 48 h at 37 °C, in absence of serum, under both (a) static, and (b) dynamic (flow cell chamber) conditions. Static biofilms were further treated for 24 h with increasing gentamicin concentrations (1x-128xMIC). Representative images of biofilm exposed at (c) 1x and (d) 128xMIC gentamicin are shown. Orthogonal images z are projections of x and y planes, collected within the biofilm as indicated by the green and red lines in the top view. Image capture was set for simultaneous visualization of red (Propidium iodide-stained dead cells), green (Syto-9-stained viable cells), and blue (Concanavalin A-stained EPS) fluorescence.
