The purpose of this study was to establish and automate an assay to be used for screening novel antimicrobial agents against biofilm-forming Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. The selected assay was based on crystal violet staining, which is a well used method for staining bacterial biofilms. The method was first optimised manually, antibiotic susceptibility was established and biofilm formation in plates...
