ESEM images of biofilm formed by S. pseudintermedius strain DSM 25713 onto polystyrene following 72 h-incubation. (a) Biofilm exhibited spatially heterogeneous organization, as suggested by the presence of “mushroom-like” structures (as indicated by arrows). Magnification: x3.000. (b, c) Multilayered organization with the presence of bacteria under EPS matrix (as indicated by arrows). Magnification: x12.500 and x20.000, respectively
