Abstract

Biofilms are surface-attached bacteria in an extracellular matrix of secreted carbohydrates (extrapolysaccharides), proteins, and/or DNA, forming planktonic free floating bacterial cells (Bjarnshol et al 2017).
Bacterial pathogens live in biofilms adhere to biotic or abiotic surfaces forming biomass. (Miguel et al 2017).
Biofilm is a complex community of single or different types (polymicrobial) of micro-organisms attached to a surface and stick to each other (Hannan et al 2018).
