TableĀ 4 The type of produced biofilms in MRSA and MSSA bacteria assessed by SEM and PCR along with their corresponding level of biofilm production

From: The potential of bacteriophage cocktail in eliminating Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus biofilms in terms of different extracellular matrices expressed by PIA, ciaA-D and FnBPA genes

Bacteria PIA-based biofilm via PCR and rough crystalline biofilm via SEM FnBPA-based biofilm via PCR and smooth proteinacious biofilm via SEM
