Table 7 Distribution of values for both green and red channels obtained from CLSM and Leica LASX software analysis. These values confirmed biofilm disruption. The biofilm volume percentage for the control was higher than that of the treated biofilms, indicting biofilm disruption by the phages

From: Genomic analyses of two novel biofilm-degrading methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus phages
