CAPPELLO, Simone  and  GUGLIELMINO, Salvatore P.P.. Effects of growth temperature on polystyrene adhesion of Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 27853. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2006, vol.37, n.3, pp.205-207. ISSN 1517-8382.

The importance of avoiding bacterial adhesion to plastic medical devices is recognized. To better understand the interaction between bacteria and surface, we studied the influence of different growth temperatures (15, 30 and 47ºC) on the polystyrene adhesion capacity of Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 27853.

Keywords : Pseudomonas aeruginosa; temperature; hydrophobicity; adhesion.
