Fig. 6

Kinetic of biofilm formation, through 72 h-incubation, by S. pseudintermedius strain DSM 25713 onto polystyrene. (a-f) Representative SEM images of biofilm formation after 1, 4, 8, 24, 48, and 72 h of incubation, respectively. Magnification (x1.000). (g, h) Magnification (x20.000) of (e) and (f), respectively. Cocci are surrounded by EPS appearing as an extensive network of filaments stretched among cells and between these and the substratum. (i) Kinetic of biofilm formation as assessed by viable count. Maximum, median, and minimum values are shown in each box (n = 6)
