Abstract:This study evaluated biofilm formation and antimicrobial susceptibility of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated to evaluate the microbiological quality of 80 natural mineral water samples sold in 20 L bottles. The quantity of P. aeruginosa and enterococci was assessed, including total coliforms, thermotolerant coliforms and sulfite-reducing clostridia (SRC). Biofilm production from P. aeruginosa was evaluated in brain heart infusion broth (BHI) and sterile natural mineral water at temperatures of 25 and 35°C for 24… Show more
