The ability of 12 Salmonella isolates originating from animal, birds and environmental sources to form biofilms was investigated using 96-well flat microtitre plate assay. At 24-hours, none of the isolates formed biofilm, while most isolates were weak biofilm producers at 48 and 72 hours. As the biofilms has the ability to resist disinfectants, antimicrobials and contribute to virulence, has gained importance in food industries.

Keywords: Salmonella, biofilm, low nutrient conditions
