ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the findings of a study regarding the formation of biofilm by staphylococcus (S.) epidermis and S. aureus on polymer surface as well its correlation with methicillin susceptibility. The study used four strains of S. including methicillin sensitive S. aureus (MSSA), methicillin resistant S. aureus (MRSA), methicillin sensitive S. epidermis (MSSE), and methicillin resistant S. epidermis. The study indicates that MRSA could produce more bio film compared to other groups.
