Biofilm and EPS formation analysis with confocal laser scanning fluorescence microscopy. Wild-type UA159, ptxA strain, ptxB strain, ptxAB strain, CptxA strain, CptxB strain and CptxAB strain were incubated in TVL medium for 120 h anaerobically. The formed biofilms were stained with SYTO9 (a) and EPS were stained with calcofluor white (b). Confocal laser scanning fluorescence microscopy was used to examine. At least five independent fields were collected at 100× magnification per experiment and three independent experiments were performed. Red lines represent 20 μm
