Abstract

The paper reports the investigations of properties stemming from bacterial adhesion (biofilm) on stainless steel (AISI 304 and AISI 316) surfaces for application in the petroleum industiry. These were carried out using epifluorescene microscopy, environmental scanning electron microscopy (ESEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). The strains identified by-morphological characterization and biochemical tests and results showed that the extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) were mainly (distributed in the cell-substratum periphery.
