Biofilms have the ability to attach to both biotic and abiotic surfaces. With the advent in medical industry, use of indwelling prosthetic devices have increased abiotic surfaces providing opportunities for attachment by the biofilm forming bacteria and thus leading to infections. Treatment of infection by biofilm forming bacteria is difficult due to their decreased susceptibility to antibiotics. Hence, this study was aimed to compare the sensitivity and specificity of the three phenotypic methods for the detection of biofilms.

Keywords: Biofilm, Infections, Decreased susceptibility, Phenotypic methods
