Abstract

Clostridium difficile can form biofilms. Thirty-seven strains were characterized for their ability to form a biofilm, adhesion on an inert surface and hydrophobicity. No correlation between the ability to form a biofilm and the strain virulence was highlighted. However, non-motile strains were not able to form a high biofilm.
