Abstract

The biofilm-forming capacity of 972 clinical isolates of Staphylococcus aureus was tested using a high-throughput polystyrene 96-peg plate format. Isolates of S. aureus were collected from patients in hospitals throughout Scotland from 2004 to 2006; 763 of these were meticillinresistant S. aureus (MRSA) and 209 were meticillin-sensitive S. aureus (MSSA).
