From: Hindering the formation and promoting the dispersion of medical biofilms: non-lethal effects of seagrass extracts

Fig. 6

Microplate-based biofilm assay. Percentage reduction of the number of adhered cells of E. coli and C. albicans on hydrophilic and hydrophobic surface in presence of non-lethal concentrations of seagrass extracts. According to post hoc analysis (Tukey’s HSD, p ≤ 0.05), stars indicate statistically significant differences between the means of three independent replicates. In addition, the mean ± SDs of the percentage reduction of the number of adhered cells with seagrass extracts at non-lethal concentrations on hydrophilic and hydrophobic surface are reported in the table. The higher anti-adhesion effect for each microorganism was highlighted. (EAL = Enhalus acoroides leaf; EAR = Enhalus acoroides root; HPL = Halodule pinifolia leaf; HOL = Halophila ovalis leaf)
