Biofilms are formulations of a particular group of microorganisms, sophisticated collections of polysaccharides, DNA and proteins. It is an entity found on many living and non-living surfaces. With biofilms productions, bacteria can gain a defensive shield against disinfectants, antibiotics and host defence. The resistant potency to antibiotics acquired when a bacteria form a biofilm, complicate the treatment and even becomes ineffective after being the right choice of medicine to the same strain of bacteria in its planktonic format. Biofilms appears to be a significant virulence factor to strengthen the colonization of bacteria in medical devices and living tissues, and weaken the process to have an effective treatment. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of biofilm formation and antibiotic susceptibility using statistical analysis via One-way ANOVA and Tukey post-test to highlight significant difference between a collection of bacterial strains.

Key words: Biofilms formation, bacteria, and antibiotic susceptibility.
