Adhesion of Bacillus spores to inanimate materials: effects of substratum and spore hydrophobicity

, : Adhesion of Bacillus spores to inanimate materials: effects of substratum and spore hydrophobicity. Biofouling 3(2): 139-149

The adhesion of bacterial spores to substrata such as packaging materials used in food and pharmaceutical industries can lead to product contamination and spoilage. This study was conducted to determine the influence of substrata and spore surface properties on the adhesion of Bacillus spores to food contact materials. Contact angle measurements were used to describe the hydrophobic character of the test materials.
