Abstract

MOREIRA, Camila Alencar et al. Biofilm production by clinical Staphylococci strains from canine otitis. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2012, vol.43, n.1, pp. 371-374. ISSN 1517-8382.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-83822012000100044.

This study determined the species of 54 staphylococci isolates from canine otitis and their ability to produce biofilm through the Congo red agar method, confirmed by scanning electron microscopy. The most frequently identified species were S. intermedius and S. simulans. Results showed that 30% of the strains were biofilm producers.

Keywords : biofilm; Congo red agar; scanning electronic microscopy; canine otitis.
