Abstract:
Riemerellosis, a bacterial disease causing huge economic loss among ducks of Kerala. Persistent infections were noticed in several infected farms and hence the role of biofilm production was analysed. One evaluating the minimum inhibitory concentration and minimum bactericidal concentration against enrofloxacin and sulpha-trimethoprim, twice the values of planktonic cells were obtained for biofilm formers. This indicates the biofilm formers are more resistant than planktonic cells and it correlated well with the field condition experienced earlier.
