L. reuteri adherence is strain-dependent. L. reuteri biofilms were cultured for 24 hours in 96-well polystyrene plates. The relative propensities of L. reuteri to form biofilms were measured by absorbance spectrophotometry after staining with crystal violet. L. reuteri ATCC 6475 and ATCC PTA 5289 were more adherent then CF48-3A and ATCC 55730 (ANOVA, p < 0.02).
